1 Year Post Diploma BA(Hons) Performance Studies:
21 years +

During the last 20 years Acting and Musical Theatre schools with NCDT or CDET accredited courses have actively sought university association and degree status for their courses. The PDBA was conceived because it was felt that any student with a Diploma in Acting or Musical Theatre from any UK NCDT or CDET accredited Drama Course should have access to a qualification at Degree level.

It is deemed that the completion of a three year accredited full time vocational course plus the PDBA conversion course are comparable to the training recImage of Acting / Musical Theatre School in London, UKeived by courses that are presently award degrees, and this is why the PDBA can offer, via conversion, a full BA Honours degree in Performance studies.

This academic course will enable the student to reflect with greater depth on various aspects of their previous training and to emerge with a qualification that is broadly recognised, transferable and a base upon which further study and career development can be built.

It will extend the student’s theoretical experience of a range of performance styles and their understanding of the value and process of research.

It will enable the student to articulate ideas in both oral and written form, to create seminar presentations and to focus on a particular aspect of the performing arts in a final dissertation.

3 Year/BA Hons Acting:
The acting course trains actors to work in a contemporary, industry-relevant environment and, as a consequence, we offer a thorough training in film and television to run alongside the more established training for theatre and radio.

- We aim to produce actors who can employ strong vocal and physical skills to express a complex understanding of the inner lives of their characters, together with an ability to represent subtle and complex character relationships in a variety of performance contexts.

- We create an environment for training that is based on trust, mutual respect and passion, so the students will be secure enough to take huge creative risks.

The course is constructed to take the students on a creative journey that allows them to develop their individual skills to become inventive and imaginative actors. They discover how to use their unique personalities in the creation of truthful and original characters.

3 year BA Hons Musical Theatre:
