Saturday 3rd and Saturday 10th July, 10am-3pm

Do you have a passion for Beauty, Special Effects or Aesthetics? Have you ever thought about working alongside professional make-up artists or pursuing a career in TV, theatre and production? University College Birmingham’s summer school will give you a rare insight into a range of pathways that lead to a variety of creative service careers within this growing industry. You will gain first-hand experience by participating in course-related activities such as character creation and have the opportunities to showcase the work you have created. This will be led by our lecturers, industry experts and guest speakers.

Our academic teams and industry experts will discuss with you the extensive careers available in Special Effects, Hair and Media Make-up and Aesthetics. Whether you are thinking about becoming a skincare consultant, make-up artist or an aesthetics practitioner, you will get a unique flavour of how exciting university life can be.

We will be hosting this virtual event via Microsoft Teams. Participants will require a PC/laptop, with visual and audio aspects available in order to engage with the event. Any additional resources for activities will be provided in advance to participants if necessary.
