Courses are taught by industry professionals in a specialist millinery studio and our students are able to get a taste of what it’s like working as a milliner through live projects with industry. Through our links with many British milliners we can facilitate work experience opportunities for those who wish to pursue millinery as a career. We are happy to offer flexible programmes of study to meet individual student needs.

The college, teachers and students are all great! Anna, millinery student
