Condé Nast Launch University

Condé Nast, the publisher of Vogue magazine is to open a college of fashion and design in London. The private education establishment will open September 2013, focusing mainly on postgraduate and short-term qualifications. Currently the college has no plans to offer undergraduate degrees.

The principal will be magazine editor Susie Forbes. Susie Forbes has spent over 25 years working in the fashion and media industries. Having started her career in the fashion department at ELLE, Susie joined British Vogue and within five years was promoted to Deputy Editor, working alongside Alexandra Shulman. She was appointed as the founding Editor of Easy Living in 2004, a position she held until taking up the post of Principal of the Condé Nast College in September 2011.

It is the first step in to the education market for the international publishers. Nicolas Coleridge, the President of Condé Nast International, ‘Do I envisage us hiring a number of graduates from the College on our magazine and digital teams around the world? Absolutely!’ The company is seeking to teach and inspire the new fashion talent of the future in areas such as journalism, interior design and decoration.
The company says it will offer a year-long Vogue fashion foundation course, as well as short courses.
The college stems from a move by the government in England has said it wants to attract new providers in to the education market.

From 2012, degree-level students at private universities in England will be eligible for state-funded loans of £6,000 for their tuition fees. The current fee for the VOGUE fashion certificate is £6,600 while the one-year VOGUE fashion foundation diploma, costs £19,560.
