The course offers teaching by industry practitioners and work placement opportunities. You will also have access to our excellent workshops.

**What can you expect?**

BA (Hons) 3D Effects for Performance and Fashion integrates the demands of interpreting a performance with specialised design and craft skills. You will explore cultural and historical contexts of the subject and so enhance the design and realisation of you practical work.

On this course you will work with students from the related disciplines of costume and hair, make-up and prosthetics. You will have the opportunity to do a short work placement in the industry and to complete several industry-facing projects within the course.

London College of Fashion undergraduate courses develop your personal and professional skills. On this course you will develop skills in your discipline until you are an independent creative thinker. Your skills will make you capable of making an effective contribution to this sector of the fashion industry. We embed Personal and Professional Development (PPD) skills in all units on every course. Speaker programmes with contributions from alumni and members of industry are a part of many courses. We encourage graduates who wish to continue their education at postgraduate level to progress to suitable courses within the College, the University or elsewhere.

Many graduates prefer to seek employment as soon as they have completed their undergraduate studies. Recent graduates from this course have found employment with the National Theatre and with Madame Tussauds. They have worked on film productions including Harry Potter films, Hellboy, Batman Begins, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr Fox, and Dark Shadows. Graduates have also worked with the artists Ron Mueck and Damien Hirst and the fashion designer Hussein Chalayan.

This course is based in Lime Grove in Shepherd's Bush, which is west of Holland Park and Notting Hill. Tucked away in a quiet street, our Lime Grove campus is a beautiful brick building with rustic windows and high ceilings. Nearby Portobello Road market is the world’s largest antiques market and adjacent Shepherd’s Bush Market is full of vibrant fabrics, fresh produce, furniture and falafel. Make-up, prosthetics and photography facilities can be found at Lime Grove, along with media labs.
