Performing Arts University of Sunderland


Learn to be a versatile performing artist. Personalise your studies between dance, drama and musical theatre, to suit your evolving interests and aspirations. Become a confident, experienced professional who's industry ready.

Explore and specialise in dance, drama or musical theatre or work towards being a triple threat performer. Whether you wish to dance, act, devise, choreograph, teach or facilitate in the community this course will give you the skills, techniques, confidence and experience to be professional and industry ready.

Personalise your studies to suit your evolving interests and aspirations.

Study performing arts in a multidisciplinary way - which you will know is reflective of the industry. Experiment with new things, create a personal pathway, with a focus on dance, drama or musical theatre or a mix of all three. Build the necessary skills to succeed in higher education, recognise your own strengths and develop as a versatile employable practitioner.

If you were seeking to study on our BA (Hons) Dance or BA (Hons) Drama courses, we encourage you to apply for this course instead. Our links with industry show that employers are looking for graduates with a wider understanding of performing arts and we want you to graduate with the best opportunities possible that will prepare you for a dance or drama related career.

If you have previously studied an HNC, HND, Foundation Degree or started a degree elsewhere in a relevant subject you may gain direct entry to join this course at Stage 2 or 3.
