My programme

"The freedom you’re given with projects to interpret briefs and tailor them to your own style, concept and imagination is one of things I’ve enjoyed most about studying Performance Costume. My programme is very intense but each day is filled with fun.

"The biggest challenge has definitely been learning to work on more than one project at a time. The programme prepares you to work like you would in the real world and we get the chance to work on several projects at a time so time management can be very difficult.

"The most rewarding thing about studying Performance Costume is looking at all the work you've produced at the end of the night and feeling glad that you just took that extra few hours to work on a project; the final output of a project is also extremely rewarding because you look at the finished piece and think about all those long nights that made it worth it!

"There’s no one thing I could say is my favourite part on this programme, because everything we have scheduled on our timetable is literally so fun. I cannot choose."

The freedom you’re given with projects to interpret briefs and tailor them to your own style, concept and imagination is one of things I’ve enjoyed most about studying Performance Costume.

My future

"Studying Performance Costume is equipping me for a career in the future by pushing my skills further to the point I can experiment and try new things. I think it’s here at University that we students develop most of the skills we will use in our future."
