Training Opportunity

Design for Theatre and Performance BA (Hons)

The Theatre Design course offers a highly creative preparation for a successful career in theatre and associated live and recorded performance events. You will experience the total design process from the initial creative dialogue, through visualisation to full performance.

Placing equal emphasis on costume and set design, you will learn to respond visually and creatively to stimuli ranging from text and character to music, physicality and time. The course will also develop your professional awareness and understanding of the responsibilities of the designer through a comprehensive programme of classes, projects and public performances.

Our graduates leave as imaginative, practical and creative collaborators and are sought after within the wider performance and related industries. Skills they acquire have enabled them to work as designers for a full range of theatre, film and event production companies. Graduates also work as design assistants, costume assistants and model makers. Several have also taken up postgraduate studies.
