The Foundation in Arts and Education is a 1+3 year programme that results in direct progression to the undergraduate degrees offered within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. This rigorous programme provides students with a strong academic background that will result in enhanced language, communication, critical thinking and study skills.  

Students on this programme also chose from a range of elective modules that provide the opportunity to sample topics related to their chosen undergraduate pathway such as politics, the world economy, media and education.

The International Communication Studies with Performing Arts pathway is conceived with a clear aim - allowing students to combine their Career with their Passion.

Performing Arts worldwide is a multibillion industry, which demands qualified practitioners in a range of positions that encompass the whole creative and production process, from performers to technical staff, from stage direction to communication and management. Our graduates will learn how to become leading voices in this fascinating field, gaining understanding on the dynamics of Creative Industries, and on the social and cultural elements inherent to them. They will have the opportunity of gaining hands-on practice in the process of development and production of music, dance and theatre shows, while developing further understanding in the field of Media and Communication.

This course is particularly intended for students with a passion for Performing Arts (including music, dance and theatre), who want to find solid career options within the field.
