This exciting, accelerated 1-year media makeup course for those 19+ will enable you to develop the essential skills needed for a career in media makeup. This course develops your practical skills to become a professional make-up artist, creating looks for your portfolio across fashion and photographic, and make-up and hair styles for TV, Film and Theatre. You will learn everything from the application of specialised make-up and hair to creating mood boards and concept designs before creating full character, editorial and transformational looks.

This course is practical in nature but will involve some written assignments, project development work and exams. You will be creating looks within our specialist make-up studios at our WISE campus, you will get to apply your skills on yourself, fellow students, or bring a friend who one week could be an alien and then a fashion model the next.

What do I need to join?

You should demonstrate a genuine interest in media, fashion and theatrical make-up and hair. You will need to be an Adult aged 19 or over and ideally have a 3-x grade 4 (C) GCSEs including English Language, or be able to demonstrate that you are able to work the required level 3 standard. Acceptance on the course will be subject to skills check/interview with the course tutor.

What can I do next?

 You may go on to degree studies in Specialist Make-up at our University Centre WISE.
