AMFI is the only Bachelor’s degree programme in the Netherlands to cover the entire fashion chain. Fashion is a serious business. Behind the façade of luxury and glamour lies one of the largest and most dynamic global industries. AMFI – Amsterdam Fashion Institute students explore the fashion world through the prism of three key dimensions: Design, Branding, and Business & Development. Our four-year full-time Bachelor’s degree programme at AMFI - Amsterdam Fashion Institute provides a solid basis for your career in the fashion industry. AMFI offers its Bachelor programme in both Dutch and English.
First-year students will have an opportunity to explore personal interests, ambitions and talents in the context of fashion, the fashion industry and its various dimensions. The emphasis is on developing students’ talents and acquiring the necessary competences from the creative circle: research, decision-making, realisation, presentation, reflection and organisation. The teaching is provided in an integrated format, and is product and process-driven. The process document serves as a basis for reflection on personal development. The emphasis is on personal development and individual choices.
AMFI is the only institute in the Netherlands to cover the entire fashion chain. We are unique in bridging the gap between culture and commerce. We offer added value with our creative approach and an educational concept based around integrative learning. This concept plays a key role in all our education.
As in the first year, second-year AMFI students will have an opportunity to combine the various dimensions. You will also prepare for the flexible programme in years 3 and 4.
You will further develop your talents over the course of years 3 and 4. We refer to this structure as the Flexible Programme. Students choose a specialisation, a minor and a work placement. You are free to take the various curricular components in any preferred order. These choices will depend on your own individual talents and ambitions. You will spend the final semester of your studies on a final project.
