BA (Hons) Performing Arts (Top-up) has been designed for students who have completed a Higher National Diploma or Foundation Degree in Performing Arts, or a related subject, and wish to ‘Top-up’ their qualification with another year of study to achieve a full Degree. A core element of the qualification involves collaborating with a professional theatre company on a full-scale production, where students take on both a performance role and a production or administrative role. Students will also complete a research project on the performing arts topic of their choice, with the option of using practical work as part of their research. The remainder of study comprises optional modules that allow students to pursue their own specialism, including both dance and drama pathways. We believe in learning through practice, which is why we have eight large practical studio spaces, a studio theatre and film studio. We also have non-teaching rehearsal spaces that students can independently use for their rehearsals. Modules: Professional Performance Project, Research Project, Digital Performance, Performing Text, Performing Dance and Independent Project 2 and Performing Arts in the Community.

What our students say:

Preparation for Education and Training (PET) (Level 4)

Nick Leah Certificate in Education 14+ “My industry qualifications meant that the Certificate in Education 14+ was the most suitable pathway to enable me to become a lecturer in a Further Education setting. It means that I am able to pass on my knowledge to the next generation of engineers. The course itself is challenging both in the assignment writing and also in the classroom observations of my new teaching skills. I was taught new ideas and techniques and used parts of my brain that I didn’t know existed. Personally, I had been out of education for around 30 years but my course tutors and mentor offered a lot of support and encouragement. In addition, my course peers were a fun and dynamic bunch and we kept each other smiling when times got tough and had a lot of laughs. We all learnt so much and we all felt an enormous sense of achievement on graduation day at Brooksby Hall, it was such a special occasion. If you have industry qualifications and a desire to teach in your field of expertise then this is the course for you.”
