Course summary

This course will develop your own professional practice or arts based career. Having the opportunity to attend industry events and talks; to stage performances with our Student Theatre Company; and to gain professional acting experience through LSBU’s creative agency, the South Bank Collective, will help you prepare for the arts career you really want.

On this practical performance course you’ll become a member of the renowned LSBU Student Theatre Company and take part in international performance projects, intensive workshops and residencies with major theatre companies such as Shakespeare’s Globe, Frantic Assembly and Complicite. You’ll perform at the Edric Theatre, our on-campus contemporary performance space.


Working with professional theatre makers during your course means that you leave us with a strong network of professional contacts and an understanding of what it takes to begin to make your own way in a competitive industry.

You’ll have gained a holistic experience of theatre productions, with skills in everything from acting technique and directing to marketing, publicity and events management. You can be confident that you’re ready for your next career step.

Performing as you study will equip you for a career in acting, live art performance, directing, stage management, lighting, sound design or production. You could also use the course as a platform for teaching, arts management or research. Take a look at some potential careers, including acting and stage management, on Prospects.
