Study Performing Arts at DMU
The opportunities in performance and arts and festivals management are endless, our courses are designed with employability in mind and will develop your practical, theoretical and professional skills needed to succeed.
We are actively involved with the city of Leicester’s cultural life and have developed a number of partnerships with key cultural centres and organisations. These include the Curve theatre where our students have opportunities to engage with programmes of work and initiatives across all areas of the theatre. We also have strong links with Phoenix Cinema and Art Centre, and the nationally renowned Leicester Comedy Festival.
The Performance Arts Centre for Excellence (PACE) provides sector-leading spacious studios, rehearsal rooms and fully equipped performance spaces. Your creative work is supported by passionate expert technicians.
Our excellent industry links give you the opportunity to undertake placements and work in professional collaborations with expert practitioners.
Some of our postgraduate Performance Arts courses also offer the opportunity to do a year-long placement in industry, allowing you to gain valuable experience to enhance your practical and professional skills.
If you are on a Tier 4 visa and are approved to undertake a one year work palcement, you will be granted a longer visa that includes the work placement.
However if you do not subsequently undertake a placement, we will curtail your visa which may have implications for any further Tier 4 visa applications. Any time added for work placements will contribute towards your time limit for studying in the UK.
English language requirements:
Our performance courses require an IELTS 6.0 overall with a minimum of 5.5 in each band, or equivalent.
If you do not meet the English language criteria, you may want to consider joining a DMU pre-sessional English course before you begin your studies.
