In the final year, you’ll shape your own individual project, anticipating your future in this diverse and expanding sector.


BA Performance: Design and Practice students leave with a broad and valuable understanding of performance practice in its many forms.

Skills acquired enable BA Performance: Design and Practice graduates to become versatile practitioners in exciting and diverse contexts including theatre, film, and television.

BA Performance: Design and Practice students find success as production designers or in related roles such as director or producer, or, increasingly, in 'hybrids' roles such as designer-director or performer-designer.

Or they launch their own independent collaborative ventures, creating performance in their own image.
