We believe that the friendships that the students make with one another while they are studying with us are as important as the networking opportunities they will have with an enormous number of external industry professionals. As a result, we encourage a rich, engaged and collegiate attitude from our students while they are here with us, allowing them to forge firm friendships that they will carry forward into their myriad, and undoubtedly stellar, careers all over the globe.


Careers


The Condé Nast College places our students in a position to reach their dream career. The College offers excellent industry links and partnerships. Students not only gain a thorough preparation for business life, they have already had extensive engagement with the professional world before leaving the College. Work experience/internships at Condé Nast may be offered to a select group of the most talented students. The College cannot pledge work placements at other companies but it will make introductions and recommendations for star students. The College’s careers advisors are able to guide students on further study, employment opportunities, internships, placements and projects relevant to each student’s requirements. They offer a professional service designed to respond to individual needs. The career advisors also hold workshops on CV writing, portfolio presentation, job search skills and interview techniques.

Students also gain valuable, practical experience in delivering visual presentations. The ethos of the Condé Nast College is to equip students with knowledge and skills appropriate to a wide range of careers in the fashion industry or to prepare them for further study in relevant fields.
