The entry requirements are varied for this course, mature students coming with transferable skills and life experience do not necessarily need to meet the formal criteria. It is always worth coming in for a chat. We are happy for you to shadow classes for a day just to get a better idea and to see if we are a good fit for you.
At interview we will be looking for a passion for costume and this should come across when discussing your work. Hobbies are very important to us as they show your focus and commitment to the subject, so whether you are into LARP, Cos-play, part of a local theatre company or just love to design and make, then its always worth getting in touch.
