1 Year Full Time Course

Full Time Media Makeup, Hair and Prosthetics Course

About the Course

This Full Time Makeup Course really is the course to rival all others… This course covers all aspects of working as a professional Makeup Artist in which ever part of industry you decide.
You will study for a full year and leave with an internationally and industry recognised certificate in Media make-up, hair and prosthetics. We also include a professional photo shoot in our amazing studio so you can have a head start with a professional portfolio of images.

Whilst its not always possible we try hard to encourage you to go on work experience when you’re ready and confident. Often just watching on set can be a massive eye opener for students and can enhance the learning process massively.
