About

The Theatre Design (Hons) course at University of the Arts London (UAL) focuses on set and costume design. The course also introduces you to other areas of design for performance such as video projection, lighting and sound design.

Overview

You will gain the practical and conceptual skills required by today’s professional designers. We prepare you to work in live events, contemporary theatre and performance design.

A theatre designer designs the environment in which a performance takes place and the costumes. They may also design sound, lighting and other digital aspects. All these areas are covered on the course.

As well as having a range of practical skills, designers must be good communicators and collaborators. They must be resourceful, imaginative, self-assured and effective problem solvers.

The rich mix of practice and theory on the BA Theatre Design (Hons) course at University of the Arts London (UAL) ensures that experimentation and critical thinking are equally valued. This will enable you to produce inventive and imaginative design work underpinned by strong practical skills.
