Because the course is intensive, and the training is specialised, there are only a limited number of places on the course every year. As this is a full-time two year course, the traditional semester system doesn't apply.
It’s a shame it (BA Perfformio) didn’t exist when I was a student.
This is a progressive and innovative course taught over a period of two years by a combination of University of Wales Trinity Saint David staff and experts who work professionally in the fields of television, dance, entertainment, musical theatre and theatre.
The course is provided over six specific learning periods; two periods for each academic level. These periods will last around 12 weeks each. One of this programme’s strengths is the strong partnership between the University and relevant representation from the creative Industries.
We look for students who have the potential to develop into confident and successful performers who will be able to perform in the theatre, in concert halls or in radio and television studios. As the course is intensive – with Training sessions held throughout the week – students will need to be physically fit and healthy. Despite this, the most important element will be a willingness to learn from experts in the field and respond to the advice given to them during their day to day work.
Ultimately, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David wishes to see this course provide talented, flexible and Professional graduates for stages across Wales and beyond. The course’s structure is ambitious and the experiences gained by the students will be rich, timely and varied which will ensure they are prepared thoroughly for a number of different careers relating to performance.
