University of Chester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This course invites you to explore performance from a variety of angles, encompassing dance, drama and interactive performance, not just as separate subjects but allowing you to work at the intersection of these 3 areas. As your studies progress, you will be able to define your own specialism whilst adding a body of supplementary and supporting knowledge areas in order to make you a well-rounded and multidisciplinary performer. Teaching takes place at the Kingsway Buildings.
For the latest example of curriculum availability on this degree programme please refer to the University of Chester's Website.
You will be assessed in a variety of ways, many of which are designed to simulate what happens in the world of performing arts outside of the University. You will write essays and give presentations, undertake spoken exams and create portfolios, but you will predominantly be assessed in practical performances.
