Abstract: This research attempted to evaluate the value of the full-time modular scheme of fashion and textile studies offered by the Institute of Textiles and Clothing of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The simple model of the educational system and the performance indicators were adopted in this research. The findings revealed that the benefit of the modular scheme at its first stage of implementation was satisfactory as the resources required for this programme were reduced and fewer students left the course in the early part of the academic year. Feedback from the survey of students indicated that the module contents in stage I were too difficult to assimilate. The lecturers' other commitments in addition to administration problems also affected the image and effectiveness of the scheme. In this project report, some recommendations are provided in an attempt to solve the problems cited above. Firstly, the contents of the modules should be reviewed by the relevant subject committee to ensure that they are appropriate to the level of the students and that they meet their needs. The contents of the modules should be expanded to incorporate both technical and business/trading operational topics. Secondly, the communication between lecturers and students should be both fostered and enhanced. Proper channels for such communication should be established, and regular meetings for both formal and informal discussion should be scheduled. Thirdly, the scheme should be promoted to the interested parties by means of visits to secondary schools and companies, news bulletins in the conventional mass media, and a 'home page' on the internet.
