Our teaching team has a breadth of experience in the make-up industry, including tutors who are practising make-up artists, and they bring specialist knowledge of the sector to the classroom. Your course will include an industry placement, and fantastic opportunities to take part in industry competitions such as World Skills UK and support other departments in college, such as performing arts with theatrical and media make-up. Students also support tutors with work behind the scenes at events such as the prestigious Manchester Fashion Week and the NHS with the production of visual mock injuries for training.
