About the Course
We understand that some of you are unable to commit to full time education and so this part time media course is a level 3 qualification for students who want to take the first steps into industry. This course is not as in depth as the full time media course, it does not offer the hair cutting or prosthetics units but it is a great start to your career. Successful students who are dedicated to the subject will be qualified to work in the media, either in theatre, television, film, advertising, photography or even catwalk.
Students should be willing to commit fully to this makeup course and be able to complete coursework outside of college hours. You will study one day a week in college, 95% of this time will be a practical session with a small amount of theory added in
