Please note - all students who accept a place on this course are required to buy a makeup kit to support their studies. The price may vary, but is usually around £200 and must be purchased in time for the beginning of your studies. The kit contains a lot of specialist items for the units we study and we negotiate discounts with suppliers to get you the best deal possible. We also request a studio fee from each student which contributes towards workshops, shared items, photography and materials; this is £150 for the 24/25 year. We encourage students to check their eligibility for student loans from SAAS and apply early for support.
We never want finances to stand in the way of your education, so you can also find details about discretionary funding from the college on our funding and fees pages.
