The University of Brighton has been ranked as one of the best fashion schools in the world by CEOWORLD Magazine.

The New York and UK-based business magazine ranked 110 fashion schools across the globe and placed Brighton at 13th.

Dr Caterina Radvan, the university's academic programme leader for fashion and textiles, said: "It is fantastic to see our fashion courses being recognised as amongst the best in the world, building on the university's international reputation for its teaching, practice and research in the arts."

"Our students are fantastically talented and are taught on courses designed and delivered by experienced professionals. Our four-year degrees are highly creative but grounded in a realistic understanding of the industry through the Business Studies element and a year-long work experience opportunity."

"The students produce an amazing diversity of work and leave us with the skills the industry is looking for."

The league table was based on the global reputation and influence, specialisation, recruiter's feedback, placement rates, admission eligibility, and academic experience along with data from more than 35,000 students.
