When it’s time to enroll in a degree program, some students may not meet the program’s requirements, or they may be international students needing to acclimate to a new language and culture. A foundation year is a one-year program of courses to help prepare students for university enrollment.

What is a foundation year in theatre studies? Theatre studies is an education that concentrates on multiple aspects of the dramatic arts. Foundation year courses are often designed to prepare students for further education in acting or technical theatre. These courses can include introduction to acting techniques and stage-design methods. Other courses on text analysis and dramatic interpretation are also important to the study of theatre. Additional courses may focus on theatre history and appreciation.

For students of theatre studies, the interpretive and analytical skills needed in this field can be applied to various careers. The organization and communication tactics required to create a theatrical production can help students become diligent workers with great teamwork skills.

Foundation years typically take a single year to complete; however, different universities and programs may have different lengths. A student can contact schools of interest and inquire specifically about tuition and enrollment requirements.

Acting jobs at regional or national theatres are possible careers a student may pursue. Students may find jobs with touring companies or with major repertory theatres. With proper experience, some students may work as directors, producers, playwrights or designers for various theatrical productions.

Other career options include working as a technical director, stage manager or engineer of lights and sound for different shows. It is also possible for students to seek teaching positions with the appropriate degrees and certifications.

Students seeking a foundation year in theatre studies can choose from the various universities across the world that offer preparatory courses. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
