It is essential production students see as much theatre as they can. Therefore we arrange regular trips to the theatres across the county to see a variety of work produced. Termly outings include a range of theatre shows, professional workshops and workplace related activities. In addition, we organise annual trips for students. Past trips have included New York, Italy, Paris and London. There are additional fees for these.
The University of the Arts (UAL) Level 3 Diploma in Performing and Production Arts is assessed through a series of projects that are designed to broaden student’s skills, experience and expertise. The projects are multi-disciplinary and require students to work collaboratively and proactively with fellow students as well as external clients and stakeholders. A final end-point assessment (commonly referred to as the Final Major Project) decides the student’s overall grade for the year which is graded as: PASS/MERIT or DISTINCTION. The first year (Diploma) is allocated the following UCAS points: PASS (36), MERIT (60), DISTINCTION (84). The second year (Extended Diploma) is allocated the following UCAS points: PASS (72), MERIT (120), DISTINCTION (168). Student work is externally assessed and scrutinised by external verifiers from the University of the Arts London (UAL) to ensure that academic standards are adhered to and maintained.
Successful completion of the Level 3 Diploma in Performing & Production Arts will provide direct entry onto the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing & Production Arts in their second year. The design and structure of the University of the Arts London (UAL) Level 3 Diploma in Performing & Productions Arts allows students the opportunity to further extend their learning by choosing an alternative Performing Arts pathway in their second year. For example, providing the entry requirements are met, a student could follow the Acting pathway in their first year and then choose to follow the Musical Theatre, Dance or Production Arts pathway in their second year.
