You are taught through a combination of interactive workshops, lectures, seminars, and practical work. Interactive workshops take a variety of formats and are intended to enable the application of learning through discussion and small group activities. Seminars enable the discussion and development of understanding of topics covered in lectures. Practical work, in our fully equipped drama and dance studios, introduce you to the possibilities of lighting, sound, video, and space in performance. Circus and aerial work will be housed in a gym equipped with ropes, harnesses and other appropriate equipment.
Trips to see dance and theatre will inform your understanding and experience of performance, and incoming shows and workshops hosted in our Drama Studios will enable you to meet a range of theatre professionals. Level 6 modules will explore how to set yourself up as an independent practitioner, with appropriate business and entrepreneurial skills, as well as develop your skills as a potential performance or workshop leader/tutor in dance/theatre.
In addition, meetings with personal academic tutors are scheduled on at least four occasions in the first year as part of the mandatory modules, and three occasions in each of the other years of a course.
