Media Release
1 Oct 2008
The Australian Academy of Design today announced the approval of its new
Fashion Design degree course.

The Bachelor of Design Arts (Fashion Design) will commence in 2009 as a
three-year degree course.  The Academy course will provide the same total
hours of study as other four-year degree courses.
Students will be able to choose to combine studies in Fashion Design with
Advertising, Graphic Design, Photo Media or Visual Arts as sub-majors. These
unique combinations of study areas vastly broaden employment opportunities
for Academy fashion graduates.
Application for the fashion design degree course can be made through VTAC
(course code 91532).  Applicants should also contact the Academy for an
application form for direct entry into the course.
Students currently studying the Diploma of Fashion Design course at the
Academy were ecstatic to learn that they will be able to transfer to the
degree course for 2009.  The Academy will offer a bridging course during the
summer semester to enable students who have completed one year of study at
Diploma level to earn the credits required for enrolment into the degree at
second year level.
Academy Director Dr Robert Treseder said today ³The new Fashion Degree
provides an exciting alternative to university degrees and the high-priced
degrees offered in private institutions.²  The Academy is a not-for-profit
institution and government FEE-HELP assistance is available to its degree
