BA (Hons) Performing Arts consists of two pathways: Musical Theatre and Acting; each providing in-depth training shaped by current industry trends.
This course is available at the Insitute for Contemporary Theatre in the UK (Birmingham, Essex). In our campus in Birmingham, this course is currently not available to international students who require sponsorship of a Student VISA Route.
Technique, work ethic, confidence, self-awareness, and imagination are key tools for any performer looking to build a sustainable and fulfilling career in the arts.
During the first two years of your training, you will develop and embed techniques, explore new ideas and ways of working, discover yourself as a creative artist, and learn how to promote yourself and your work in a competitive market.
In the third year, the training becomes industry-focused with professional preparation, public shows, a filmed showreel, self-taping tuition as well as an independent project of your choosing.
Uniquely during your final year, you also select from a range of options, all created to meet the demands of the industry. This allows you to drill down into a specific area of performance and enhance your skill set further.
