Location: London, United Kingdom

Programs: Fashion Design, undergraduate and graduate.

Tuition: Undergraduate: £14,100 ($20,635 at current exchange rate) for overseas students; £9,000 for UK and EU students. Graduate: £14,100 ($20,635 at current exchange rate) for overseas students; £7,700 for UK and EU students.

Famous Alumni: Glenda Bailey, Felipe Baptista, Sophie Hulme, Simon Kneen, Helen Storey, John Richmond.

The Bottom Line: Kingston doesn’t have as many famous alumni as some of the more high-profile UK fashion schools, but if you aspire to a senior role at a big company, it’s a good place to start. Its graduates have held senior and director-level positions at Armani, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan, Givenchy, Lacoste, Massimo Dutti, MaxMara, Missoni and Paul Smith, as well as mass brands like Topshop, Abercrombie & Fitch, Brooks Brothers, Asos and H&M.
