Course summary

The foundation year offers an innovative new pathway into your degree. It is the first part of a four-year degree programme. It provides an alternative route for those unable to meet the traditional entry requirements for a three-year degree. It will prepare you for your degree studies in a supportive and stimulating learning environment. You will begin with an exploration of education and society, before moving onto consider including identity, being human and the digital world. Over the course of the year, you will build the skills and experience to prepare you for your chosen degree. Drama at Newman is a richly diverse programme with three main strands:

  • A performance element in which you will take part in productions, performed at professional venues such as the REP Theatre, Midlands Arts Centre and The Crescent Theatre
  • Applied Drama, including Community Drama and Theatre-in-Education.
  • a strand which traces the development of the art form and develops your critical thinking.
You will work with professional theatre companies such as Big Brum Theatre in Education Company, and receive specialist training from professionals with particular expertise. Our performance facilities ensure students devise, rehearse and perform in an appropriate environment.
