Theatre and Performance

What is the teaching and assessment structure for Performing Arts?

Performing Arts students are taught to use a variety of performing techniques, most of the modules have a larger practical outcome than the academic assignments. The programme is designed to train you as a performer, therefore, your focus is on the practice with the academic assignments supporting, contextualising, and underpinning your technical, creative, and performative understanding of the performing arts industry. All aspects of learning include independent learning and taught elements, so there will be a combination of lectures, workshops, and tutorials.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Performing Arts Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Performing Arts subject area.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
