Performance and Production Arts and Music


Turn your passion into your beloved profession at UCW with degree courses that have been designed with industry involvement to give you the edge needed to succeed in the competitive performing arts marketplace. 

All of our courses at UCW build upon an intensive training regime by also incorporating a mix of theory business acumen and transferable skills such as creative thinking which can transform businesses. This fusion of both the practical and theoretical skills will allow you to develop your own unique identity as an artist, entrepreneur and innovative and forward-thinking global citizen.

Creative Arts embrace inclusivity and diversity, allowing individuals to express themselves whilst facilitating modes of self-advocacy and communication. As a result, the arts act as a tool for cultural exchange, education and expression. Working in Creative Arts allow people to engage with all of their senses and emotions, whilst stimulating the mind and body, which nurtures the potential of innovative new projects. Here at University Centre Weston, we encourage individuality, embrace expression and champion inclusion.

Live projects are a key aspect of our courses; you will gain experience working to briefs and script scenes so that you can find the most time-efficient, cost-effective and visually impressive way to turn ideas into reality. The hands-on experience involved in our courses has led many of our previous and current students to secure their first job before they have even graduated. Small class sizes and passionate lecturers who provide valuable one-to-one support to our students.
