Performing arts

**Note: Due to the course delivery location and visa restrictions, this course is NOT available to international students requiring a Tier 4 visa**.

**Location**: This top-up degree is an award of Teesside University delivered in partnership with Stockton Riverside College (campus code 3, call 01642 865400). Indicate your point of entry as Year 3 when applying for this one year top-up.

**Course overview**: If you have a higher national diploma, foundation degree or equivalent qualification in a performing arts or events production subject, the extra year of study on this top-up degree provides you with the opportunity to gain a BA (Hons) qualification. You develop your knowledge and understanding of a range of contexts in which performance and production have developed and are practised. Today’s production industries demand highly trained, professional practitioners who can demonstrate a clear understanding of contemporary creative performance and production techniques. If you want a career in performing arts and the wider industry, this is the course for you.

**After the course**: Employers recognise the benefits of an arts-production training background and when you leave the course you bring to the workplace a wide range of highly valued skills. The ability to communicate effectively and with confidence, work independently to meet deadlines, and shape and use industry-standard materials and equipment creatively and with imagination are just a few of the qualities you can offer prospective employers.
