Swiss Mode continues to evolve and develop exciting contemporary fashion programmes leading to the internationally recognised Pearson BTEC HNC & BTEC HND awards. With automatic progression routes to join the second or final year at leading UK Universities to complete your study and gain a BA in Fashion Design (subject to final agreement, achieving distinction grades, and portfolio review), Swiss Mode programmes enable you to study online via blended delivery involving both digital and in-person teaching and assessment.
Our programme offer and delivery structure allows you the flexibility of either full-time or part-time learning (you can take up to 5 years to complete your BTEC HND) so you can fit your studies into your lifestyle, location, and budget. You could also consider and discuss with us taking individual units of our programme if you just want to take your studies step-by-step.
BTEC Higher Nationals qualifications are therefore widely recognised by industry and higher education as the principal vocational qualification at Level 4 and 5, equivalent to the first two years of an honours degree.
