Theatre and Performance

What is a Performing Arts foundation course for and what should I expect?

Unfortunately, we do not offer a foundation year for Performing Arts courses, however, we could invite you to an audition if you do not meet the entry requirements but have experience in the field.

Alternatively, you may want to look at the Theatre and Performance qualifications offered by our partners Bolton College, which will prepare you for the Performing Arts degree course.

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.

At the University of Bolton, we understand our students have different requirements and we pride ourselves on the positive and supportive learning environment we provide. Being voted No. 1 for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide, North West) is a testament to our approach.

We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
