Detailed Information

Here is Manchester Metropolitan University’s response to our Freedom of Information request:

Q: Does your HE establishment have a policy on the use of fur?

A: There is no specific policy referring to fur

Q: Does real fur feature in any of your fashion or design courses, and if so, in what way?

A: No, the use of fur is not included in any core teaching and the University does not have any specialised equipment on premises for handling fur

Q: What financial support, including sponsored competitions do you receive from the fur industry?

A: None.

Q: Does your HE establishment allow or facilitate the fur industry to promote design competitions, summer schools, sponsorships, internships, or scholarships?

A: No, students are free to enter externally sponsored (extra-curricular) competitions.  These are independent from the University and our fashion courses and we do not encourage or discourage this.


This university has no clear stance on the use of fur.

Real fur is cruel and unnecessary. Please urge the University to adopt a fur free policy.  Email:
