NORTH WEST SCHOOL OF DESIGN and its courses offer an entrepreneurial learning experience with real relevance.   Courses are structured to accommodate individuals regardless of age, race, nationality, religion or political persuasion.

From 1998 to 2011, NORTH WEST SCHOOL OF DESIGN has successfully offered a 2 year diploma course in Clothing Design & Technology as a private FET (Further Education & Training) college. In 2011, came the decision to not only re-register the college as HET (Higher Education & Training), but also to register and accredit two new degree courses:  Fashion Design andFashion Management & Communication.

Both these 3 year courses have been developed with the vision that South African Fashion education not only needed to globalize, but also needed to adapt to the changes within the global fashion industry.  Both these fashion degrees have been developed with focusing on globalization of communication, supply and manufacturing in the fashion industry.

To succeed in today’s fashion world, designers need to do more than sketch garments, buy fabrics and meet with clients. North West School of Design sets a strong foundation for future designers, fashion professionals and entrepreneurs who find it more than second nature to do that little more, to learn that little extra, to read that little longer and to adapt to an industry that in two years from now will be different from the industry we know today.
