Course content

With an inspirational array of performance spaces, plus its status as host to one of the largest cultural festivals in the world, Edinburgh offers an unparalleled environment for the study of performance costume.

You’ll work on developing a comprehensive understanding of fabric, costume design and cutting, while exploring the historical and dramatic perspectives of the discipline and the process of performance.

Thanks to our extensive national and international links with theatre, dance, film, television and opera companies, plus our network of freelance designers, you’ll be supported in sourcing work experience and other hands-on opportunities that will give you real-world skills and experience.

We encourage interdisciplinary collaboration, both through other departments such as Fashion, Textiles, Jewellery and Film and through our on going relationship with the stage and screen industry.
