Acting and performing for TV and theatre have always been closely linked, but you need an impressive set of skills to make sure you shine at both.

Our Theatre, Television and Performance degree equips you with core skills for a life in performance - be it on stage, in applied theatre, working within the community, television and radio, choreography and dance, facilitation and drama teaching or other areas of theatre and communication. It will open up career options much further beyond as well. You’ll develop public speaking skills and managerial and organisational skills.

A mix of practical and theory, this degree will develop your skills in reading for the stage, text in performance, directing and advanced performance process. The aim of the programme is to nurture the creative aspirations of our students and help them realise their potential as employable practitioners in the Creative Industries.

The programme currently holds a 100% graduate employment rate, which is a reflection of the realistically based work ethic promoted by the degree. The course tutors are practitioners within their field, and feed this experience directly into the classroom. The module content across all levels of study will also provide graduates with an up to date CV with references, contacts within the industry, an action plan for their own career path, and material for a show reel and voice reel.
