Our Foundation Year prepares you for degree-level study at WBS and gives students the opportunity to build their knowledge about business, improve some key skills we have found to be important to success during the undergraduate degree, and spend a year getting used to the university environment.

We provide a diverse programme of events and activities, such as off-campus visits to businesses, guest lectures, careers workshops, and service projects, that build your confidence and can be experiences you draw from when you move on to degree level study.

We realise that there are bright, motivated students who are capable of succeeding in our courses who may not get the chance to because of circumstances beyond their control. It is well-known that students from disadvantaged backgrounds do not gain access to higher education at the same rate as other students – not because they cannot succeed, but because of barriers that make it difficult to prove they can. We believe strongly in facilitating access to these students.... [-]

Classical & Contemporary Acting

Actor training has two distinct facets. The first to do with the holistic development of the human being that allows them to expand their imagination and empathetic capacities, to deepen their sensitivity to the broad spectrum of human experience and emotion, and to push the boundaries of their willingness and ability to connect with and express powerful and often painful feelings with freedom and authenticity.
