Level 3 UAL Extended Diploma in Performing and Production Arts


About The Course

Arts and Culture is a significant contributor to the UK economy and the well-being and education of people. With a performing arts qualification, you will develop the essential transferable skills to work in many aspects of the industry and beyond!

Our Level 3 study programmes reflect the fantastic opportunities available in the industry. This study programme offers a diverse range of specialist performance based units providing industry specific knowledge, understanding and skills that prepare students for employment, or further training. Our students learn about acting, voice, dance and movement alongside an exciting exploration of a wide range of performance styles and genres.

Our students take part in a public performance each year, and showcase their skills in a professional theatre to a paying audience! Students will work on existing published works as well as devising and writing their own performance material. We specialise in creating theatre anywhere and everywhere, and we make full use of the whole campus, indoors and out!

You will learn through a combination of lectures, dance, voice and acting workshops, rehearsals, visiting practitioners, online sessions, live community-based projects, assignment work and self-guided learning. To facilitate performances, it will be essential to be available for evening and weekend rehearsal and performance time.  You will be expected to attend a minimum of three theatre trips each year.
