Extended Diploma in Performing Arts

As a student on this course, you will be exposed to a broad range of performance genres and styles across the arts whilst developing key skills in a specialism of your choice: Music or Drama. Regardless of your chosen specialism, the Extended Diploma course is rich with opportunities to hone your communication skills, to explore and develop the expressive potential of your voice and body, to expand your knowledge, understanding and personal experience of the historical, theoretical, technical, practical and creative aspects of the performing arts, and to discover first-hand both the demands and the joys of working in an ensemble to create work that you are proud to put before an audience.

Students who are successful on this course may apply to progress onto either the Music or Drama Foundation courses, but are subject to the same audition procedures and standards as students applying directly to those courses. With hard work and dedication, however, it is possible for any Extended Diploma student to move onto this next key stage of their growth and development as performing artists.
