The Wardrobe School

Applications for 2022 are NOW OPEN!

There's one semester for this year to attend The Wardrobe School:

July - November 2022 (individual class dates below)

1. Application Process

READ CAREFULLY and complete step-by-step

Complete the form under the contact tab on our website. When prompted to indicate the services you are interested in, select "Other".

In the "Additional Comments" space, write a short introduction to yourself and why you want to start your career (and own business) as a professional Wardrobe Planner.

Upon receipt, we will send you the necessary registration documents to complete.

After submission of these documents, you will receive a link to complete:

a) a Personality Test (free of charge) and

b) a Booking Form to schedule your 60min interview (in person or digitally).

The submitted documents, the results of the Personality Test and the report after your interview will make up what is necessary for a successful application.

2. Enrolment and Tuition Costs

The total cost of the 2022 tuition fees are R 26 500*

Successful applicants are required to complete additional enrolment and registration papers and pay a refundable R 13 000 deposit to secure your space in the next semester's classes.

We outsource some subjects (for example your Marketing and Entrepreneurship modules), to qualified professionals to ensure you receive your training from the absolute best in the local industry.

The remainder of the R 13 500 tuition cost is due before the classes commence on 30 July. Some payment options are available to students, for example paying the remainder of the class fees off in instalments using Payflex (via our website).

Alternatively, arrangements to accommodate the payment of fees should be made well in advance. We recommend that as soon as a student has been accepted by The Wardrobe School, following the interview, application should be submitted at a financial institution for the granting of a personal loan or study assistance should this option be required.

*Pre-scribed text books are included. Excluded are stationary, refreshments and drinks during class and costs pertaining to the graduation ceremony.
