BA (Hons) Make-up Students Graduate

Date: 22 August 2021

Our first group of graduates from our BA (Hons) Make-Up, Special Effects & Hair for Media & Performance celebrated the completion of their course with a graduation ceremony at the University of Chichester, the awarding university for our Foundation and Degree programmes. The College works in partnership with the West Sussex-based university, meaning students are awarded their professional qualification from the University upon graduating.

Amongst the group of students were Olivia and Amy, who had both started out studying Hair & Media Make-Up Level 2 at the College. Amy has worked for numerous magazine publications and a Netflix drama and recently saw success at the National AHT online competition, where she was Highly Commended in the 1920s Make-Up category. Olivia, along with the other graduates, progressed from our Theatrical, Media & Special Effects Make-Up HND and is excited to start work for MAC as a Make-Up Artist.

Elise, another of our BA graduates, passed the course with First Class Honours and has landed a job at the English National Opera. She has taken part in multiple AHT competitions, placing 3rd in Multi-piece Prosthetics at the 2021 online competition, and winning 1st place in Ladies’ Editorial at the AHT Regionals in 2020.

Students are taught the specialist skills needed to enter the performance industry working as a make-up or prosthetics artist as well as a hair/wig dresser and maker.
