Our innovative Creative Make up Design and Practice courses prepare undergraduates for a career in the diverse make up industry, combining industry-focused technical and practical skills with academic training.
The courses are designed for those aiming for a make-up design career in areas such as fashion, photography, TV/film and the commercial sector. This may also include theatrical make up and special effects, either working for renowned brands or as freelance make up artists.
Those who complete the top up year have the opportunity to further apply their skills and knowledge in practice, exploring digital, photography and online tools to enhance their career prospects as they become practicing freelancers and work towards establishing their reputation in the industry.
Enterprising make up businesses are an emerging feature throughout the North West Region and undergraduates will be supported in their personal development for self-employment. The programme aims to not only equip the undergraduate with excellent industry-standard skills, but also produce design artists that can design, inspire and enthuse the larger audience and communicate appropriately within this ever changing industry.
