Getting the most out of a creative arts education sometimes involves spending more than just the tuition fee. You will have books to buy, of course, as well as covering the printing costs for your research or written work. Sometimes you may need to travel to visit external specialist libraries or research centres and some of these may charge for the use of their facilities. Please note that further there will be additional costs associated with this type of practical training. Appropriate technical class wear, some make-up and smaller costume items (like stockings for the women and black socks for men) are all necessary to have in your ‘must have bag’. A set of good professionally shot photographs are also important and certain memberships of talent databases to allow yourself to be marketed professionally. It is also important that you keep abreast of developments in your chosen area of expertise and therefore it is expected that you will have first-hand knowledge of the Musical Theatre shows that are playing. On average these costs could add up to well over £500. per year.
