Although the course focuses on costume and set design for shows, films and new performance disciplines, the skills you learn will prepare you for a wide range of other careers.

Costume and Performance Design are diverse and demanding subjects – you need to be interested in art, design and all genres of theatre and film. 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. We place a real emphasis on conceptual work. You’ll work alongside film, make-up and acting students on stage and in ‘live’ 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. Over the three years of study, you can choose to focus your studies and specialise in one of the 2 award-titled BA(Hons) pathways offered:

— BA (Hons) Costume

— BA (Hons) Film Costume and Performance Design*
