Course summary

This degree builds on the industry-recognised HNC. All first year entrants will start on the HNC and the entry requirements are therefore for this programme. Successful completion will allow you to progress onto the second year of the degree. Applicants already holding a relevant HNC qualification can apply for direct entry to the second year. When completing your application make sure you choose year two. It may be possible for applicants holding a relevant HND qualification to apply for direct entry to year three, again where this is the case please make sure you choose year three when completing your application.

The degree aims to ensure that your study and performance is reflective of the specific challenges and opportunities for creative practitioners in rural Scotland, while also looking outwards towards the international context. The course has a strong practice-based approach informed by academic theory. You will be encouraged throughout the course to be an independent scholar, artist and performer, while also having the opportunity to form a creative company with your fellow students, a collaboration you will be encouraged to continue after graduation. You will be trained in a variety of skills in performance-making including acting, devising, technical theatre, writing and cultural planning, equipping you well for a broad range of vocational roles within the cultural sector, as well as further study at postgraduate level. This degree builds on the HNC Acting and Performance in the first year providing students with a good grounding for degree level study. To gain entry to the degree you must first complete the HNC Acting and Performance and successfully undertake a further audition and interview.
