Overview

This course trains set and costume designers, costume interpreters and supervisors for the performance industries. We place specific focus on developing a conceptual understanding of performance design. This is a diverse and demanding subject; students need to be interested in art, design and all types of performance to support the study of the diverse array of genres they will encounter within this course: including theatre, film, television, ballet, opera and the study of new performance disciplines. You will engage with both costume and set design and costume making. Whilst our graduates may not pursue a career in both design and making, we truly believe that the knowledge and awareness gained of the overall production process during the first stage of the course is what sets our students apart and gives them an edge in industry. The University College is a very exciting place to study; you will work alongside students from the film, make-up, and acting courses on staged and filmed productions. This is a very intensive subject and the workload is heavy.

Year 1 gives you the technical and research skills to take charge of your own learning and explore the subject areas that interest you. You will learn both design and making skills before making a specialist pathway choice at the end of the year.



Year 2 is all about learning advanced technical skills within your chosen specialism.

· You’ll test the boundaries of design and making through the study of complex and challenging themes.

· You’ll have the opportunity to experience the industry through a work placement.

· You’ll start to refine your ideas of the work you want to do and formulate your career plans.



In Year 3 you’ll continue to expand your portfolio of skills and have the opportunity to work on film and theatre projects.

Our aim is to produce graduates with an excellent range of theoretical knowledge, practical experience and a truly industry-relevant, professional CV.
