Fashion

Mobility

At ESDi, we encourage our students to travel through our exchange programs with international universities who are leaders in the different disciplines of design. We have more than 50 agreements with various institutions across Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe, including some universities specialized in fashion design such as: London College of Fashion (LCF), Politecnico di Milano, Ravensbourne and Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFi).

We put our trust in mobility programs, both for students and (teaching) staff, as a way to exchange resources, knowledge and methodologies that will enrich and complete the international experience of studying design at ESDi.

Final Degree

The Final Project is the last educational task to evaluate the knowledge that students have acquired during the course of their studies. It's a project that should make use of skills in planning, conceptual thinking and production. The work is carried out individually, with the help of a tutor. Each specialization has its own specific regulations.
