The BA Hons Performance course at UWS will help to set you on track for a successful career on stage and screen - and much more.

As well as honing your stage acting talents, the course will help you to develop transferable skills in a range of performance disciplines, and add new skills in scriptwriting, directing, and researching creative practice.

The course is for emerging performers interested in developing their practical skills, researching their discipline and thinking critically about art and culture.

Combining practical and theoretical approaches, you will explore the role and potential of performance in contemporary society. The course offers optional routes in a range of specialisms, from applied and contemporary theatre, to musical theatre and acting for stage and screen.

The teaching team includes practitioners and researchers, creating strong links between performance practice, research and teaching. We have professional experience in acting, directing, musical theatre, scriptwriting, stage/screen adaptation, and theatre production.

The course team have worked with companies including the National Theatre of Great Britain, the BBC, and Singapore's Necessary Stage Theatre Company. We are also active researchers and are currently working on composition, collaboration, narratology and performance theory.
