Subject

Stage design

This unique programme has been designed to support the exciting, fast growing industry of Production Design for TV Theatre and Film. It not only allows you to develop your design and realisation skills which a top production designer would need, but also to develop specialist skills such as prop making, sculpting, concept art and character development. These are all specialist skills which the production designer would employ as part of their creative team.

This degree offers you a unique and challenging opportunity to develop a range of specialist skills and knowledge for the design, development and production of sets, props and characters. Based within a framework of creative and professional practice, and with more than twenty years’ experience in developing production designers for the entertainment industries in consultation with employers, we offer a mix of skills that make our graduates stand out from the crowd.

**Previous work experience opportunities include:**

- Beowulf for ITV Productions

**Live projects with industry are embedded throughout the three years of study, we work with companies including:**
