University of Arts London Theatre Set Design for Stage and Screen

The BA Theatre Design course at Wimbledon College of Arts covers both set and costume design.

We prepare our students to enter the world of contemporary theatre and performance design with the skills, knowledge and sensibilities that professional designers require. The rich mix of practice and theory that each student will encounter on the course ensures that experimentation and critical thinking are equally valued. This enables our students to produce inventive and imaginative design work underpinned by strong practical skills.
