Future Careers and Opportunities

Acting graduates including Mandip Gill and Freddie Bolt have appeared as regular characters in two of the nation’s leading soaps.

Music alumni go on to sustain successful careers as artists, performers, composers and engineers while performing arts graduates move into a variety of performance-related jobs including West End, touring, regional and overseas musical theatre or work as actors or performers with touring companies, creative artists and directors.

Behind the scenes operatives are in short supply. Specialist technicians in roles such as film, lighting and sound are in high demand. A number of performing arts graduates also progress on to teaching courses, MA study or work as independent dance artists.
