This course has been designed to further develop and extend the knowledge acquired by students at level five in wig making, hair, make-up and prosthetics for film, TV and theatre. The course encourages a developmental approach to teaching and learning, encouraging research, experimentation and reflection. This highly practical course has a strong emphasis on professional working practices, focusing on the development of individual competence and confidence in the production of industry standard outcomes. Module design enables students to develop their own creative ideas to discover their own individuality and to make them stand out in the field of professional make-up, hair and body artistry. The course has excellent connections within the industry, and will offer students the opportunity to engage with industry professionals through organised trips, guest speakers, demonstrations and benefit from the current professional experience of our lecturers.
