Approach to learning and assessment

The program is offered predominantly in a face-to-face learning environment with supporting e-resources in a reflective practice framework. Courses will include a variety of teaching approaches including seminars, studios, lectures and tutorials and use methods such as collaborative group work, negotiated learning, peer review, presentations, exercises, workshops and discussion.

You can also expect to engage with case studies, problem-based learning and reflective techniques such as blogs and journals. You will learn how to constructively critique your own work and that of others. Peer review is integral to the learning environment and subsequently for professional practice within the creative industries.

Assessment involves ‘learning by doing’ and will include a range of activities such as reports, written reflection, research projects, portfolios, presentations, peer or industry review. Project proposals and presentations will often relate to industry specific issues and/or theoretical constructs impacting on fashion and may involve making contact with industry practitioners regarding contemporary issues.

Most of the assessment you undertake will be designed so that your lecturer and peers can provide you with formative feedback on strengths and areas for improvement in your learning. This approach will enable you to improve on your performance during the program, as well as continue to refine capabilities for your future engagement within the fashion context and learning after graduation.

The Major project in your final semester will be a capstone experience designed as a culmination of your learning throughout the program and provide segue to your future career pathway.

Work integrated learning

RMIT is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional experience. As a student enrolled in this RMIT University program you will:

- undertake and be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate your professional practice;

- interact with industry and community when undertaking these activities;

- complete these activities in understanding real work contexts or situations

and in addition:

- these interactions and the work contexts provide distinctive sources of feedback to you to assist your learning.

- Any or all of these aspects of a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience may be simulated.

Across the four years of the program you will undertake a Fashion Design Professional Practice course each year, which include work integrated learning. In these courses you will solve authentic workplace problems or address issues faced in the fashion industry.

Program transition plan

From Semester 1 2020, the BH103 Bachelor of Fashion (Design) (Honours) program will be replaced by a new three-year program, BP328 Bachelor of Fashion (Design) program and a standalone one-year Honours program, BH127 Bachelor of Fashion (Design)(Honours). BH103 will have its last intake in Semester 1, 2019 and will be discontinued from 31 December 2019.  All new commencing students from Semester 1, 2020 will be admitted and enrolled into the new BP328 Bachelor of Fashion (Design) program.

If you complete all requirements for BH103 Bachelor of Fashion (Design) (Honours) in 2019, you will graduate with this award title. All other BH103 Bachelor of Fashion(Design) (Honours) students will be transferred into the new three-year BP328 Bachelor of Fashion (Design) or BH127 Bachelor of Fashion (Design) (Honours) program by the end of 2019 and will enrol in the new programs from semester 1 2020.

Upon successful completion of the new three year BP328 Bachelor of Fashion Design you will have the choice to graduate with the three year program or to continue your studies in the one-year Honours program, BH127 Bachelor of Fashion (Design) (Honours). If you choose to continue your studies in the Honours program you will be guaranteed entry and will not need to apply.

Current BH103 students, including those who are undertaking a reduced load, are on Leave of Absence (LOA), or have deferred studies, will not be disadvantaged by this change of program. You will not incur any extra costs or be required to complete extra credit points because of this change of program. All courses that you have passed or attempted in BH103 Bachelor of Fashion (Design) (Honours) will contribute to the new program/s. All students will be provided with a study plan and a transition map of the same or equivalent courses based on the equivalent course mapping table below.

Your study plan will outline:

  • Courses you have already completed or are currently enrolled in (results pending) in your current four-year program
  • Courses, if any, that you will need to complete in the new program structure to graduate with the award of Bachelor of Fashion (Design)
  • Courses, if any, that you will need to complete in the new program structure to graduate with the award of Bachelor of Fashion (Design) (Honours)

If you have been classified as at risk of unsatisfactory academic progress, you will continue to be classified as at risk when you are enrolled in the new program/s. Your time in the current program will be counted towards your total time taken to complete the new program/s and any leave of absence you have taken from the current program will count as leave of absence already taken from the new program.

Questions relating to this change should be directed to your Program Managers:

Denise Sprynskyj, email: denise.sprynskyj@rmit.edu.au (year 1 - 3) or Chantal McDonald, email: chantal.mcdonald@rmit.edu.au (year 4).
