The Master of Enterprise (MEnt) Textiles and Fashion degree, offered in partnership with the Manchester Science and Enterprise Centre (MSEC), is a unique and exciting programme which provides a portal to guide you into the textile and fashion enterprise culture. Graduates of the programme have gone on to launch their own businesses or work for small and large global companies.
The programme will provide you with the latest technological know-how in your chosen area, building on your existing knowledge, and teach you the specific enterprise skills necessary for the successful launch and growth of a small company. The programme will also develop your understanding of the role of innovation and knowledge transfer in enterprise.
Prior to joining the programme, you will normally have developed an enterprise idea - in some case you will have developed a product or service, as part of your final undergraduate degree, which you would like to turn into a business - but this is not compulsory.
The programme is made up of two core taught units (delivered by MSEC), Enterprise project, two elective taught units (delivered by the School of Materials) and a dissertation. The elective programme units run in parallel with the Enterprise project and provide and enhance the essential background to enable you to develop your idea, product or service.
You will be assessed by a combination of continuous assessment and examination.
Transferable skills are embedded in the units - presentation skills, report writing, project planning tools, ICT and web-based skills, negotiation, forecasting and pricing skills.
Our Open Days provide a great opportunity to take a look at the School, discover more about our courses and research, and find out what Manchester has to offer you.
International students - if you are based overseas and can't make our Open Days, please visit the international section of our website to see if a member of our International Team will be visiting your country soon.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:
UK/EU students (per annum): £4,260
International students (per annum): £22,000
Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
