AMFI - Amsterdam Fashion Institute (English programme)
About this programme
Are you creative, ambitious, outspoken and passionate about fashion? Are you willing to take on the social and creative challenges of the fashion industry? The 4-year Bachelor’s degree programme Fashion & Textile Technologies at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI) allows you to develop your branding, design and business and development skills or combine aspects of these dimensions.
The AMFI programme consists of courses in Design, Branding and Business & Development. You develop products and immerse yourself in processes. In the last 2 years of the training you follow the flexible programme.
During year 1 you will have an opportunity to explore personal interests, ambitions and talents in the context of fashion and the industry. Education is product and process-driven. You will develop a process book: an extensive collection of your research that supports your choices and conclusions. The process book is the basis for your reflection on individual development. You explore the fashion world through the prism of 3 key dimensions: Design, Branding, and Business and Development.
In the second year you will have the opportunity to combine Design, Branding and Business & Development. You will also prepare for the Flexible Programme that starts in year 3 and 4.
You further develop your skills over the course of years 3 and 4, with a Flexible Programme. You choose a specialisation, a minor and an internship.
You will spend the final semester of your studies on a final project.
There are different admission requirements for Dutch and international diplomas. Students who apply for the AMFI international programme are expected to have good written and verbal skills in English. A selection procedure includes an assignment and motivation interview.
At AMFI you have at least 16 contact hours per week in the first year. In addition, you will spend approximately 24 hours a week on projects, research and assignments and preparing for classes and assessments.
