Make-up, Special Effects & Hair for Media & Performance BA (Hons) Top-up Degree - Jessica
Former School(s): Carrington School (The Warwick School)
Jessica started her journey at East Surrey College in 2018 after coming to an Open Day and being impressed by the wide range of courses which offered new opportunities and different career paths.
Since joining the College, she has successfully progressed, previously studying:
- Theatrical, Special Effects & Media Make-Up Level 3
- HND Theatrical Make-up Years 1 & 2
Jessica has really enjoyed University Level course, explaining: “It’s a lot more self-directed. You have much more autonomy over your work and can tailor it towards your chosen career.”
She also really liked that: “You learn for the purpose of going into film and TV but the course opens you up to much more.” For example, she’s discovered a love of sculpting which could lead her in many directions.
Jessica has found the teaching and support at the College excellent: “The classes are small and we have such a close relationship with our tutors. We can ask whatever we want and always feel included.”
She added, “This is something you just wouldn’t get in a traditional University setting and one of the main reasons I have continued to stay on at ESC.”
Her advice to upcoming school leavers is “to be open to the wide range of opportunities that are here at East Surrey College – you may find a course that you hadn’t previously considered which could open up different possibilities for your future career.”
