What students are doing

Images of Student Work

Take a look at some of the incredible costumes that our third year BA (Hons) Costume and Performance Design have worked on as part of their final major projects. As a Costume student, you’ll collaborate with students from our BA (Hons) Acting, Film and Make-Up courses: opportunities range from designing a show, making a costume for a professional show, to designing a series of short films.
