Meet Sumeya Ahmed, Intern at Victoria Beckham | MADE-IT Bursary Scheme


The Made-It Bursary Scheme was created by UKFT to further the production and sourcing knowledge of graduates while promoting UK manufacturing. It offers to five students per academic year the chance to undergo a funded-internship at a top UK brand, studio or manufacturer. The programme runs in collaboration with 5 UK-based universities and funding is leveraged from CapitB and Clothworkers. Click here for further information.


Sumeya Ahmed, a 3rd year student on the BA Fashion Design & Development course at the University of the Arts London, undertook an internship at Victoria Beckham through the Made-It Bursary Scheme. She is one of the five students who got selected to participate to the programme for the school year 2021-2022.

Five universities participated to this edition of Made-It: The University of Huddersfield, Istituto Marangoni, University of the Arts London, Nottingham Trent University and Heriot Watt University.

Sumeya shared with us her experience interning at Victoria Beckham:

“Interning at Victoria Beckham was an incredible and interesting journey.

I was able to see how all the teams across VB work towards a final collection and how creative decisions are made as a collective.”


“It truly was an amazing experience to be a part of. However, as like any other jobs there are ups and downs my manager helped me through them and is always there to reassure me.

Thank you so much to UKFT for providing the additional support that I needed as it helped me immensely. Thank you so much! Forever grateful!”
