Graduates from this course have gone on to design and make costumes for theatres and film studios all over the world.
Although the course focuses on costume and set design for theatre, films and new performance disciplines, the skills you learn will prepare you for a wide range of other careers.
Costume and performance design is a diverse and demanding subject – you need to be interested in art, design and all types of performance. You’ll discover how to create whole new worlds on this exciting and creative course. As well as technical skill, you’ll learn that great design depends on your ability to interpret ideas and we place a real emphasis on conceptual work.
Work as a team, succeed as an individual
You’ll work alongside students from the film, make-up, and acting courses on stage and film productions. While your eventual career may not be in both design and making, we believe that understanding the overall production process is what sets our students apart and gives them an edge.
