Foundation, Bachelor and Master
Musical Theatre degrees

Our BA (Hons) Musical Theatre programme is a three-year undergraduate degree. We build on your strengths by exploring your individual qualities, tailoring the training accordingly, and providing you with the employable skills demanded by today’s international musical theatre industry.

Our Musical Theatre Foundation Course will teach you all the core skills needed to start your career in musical theatre. We cover dance, singing and acting as well as creating self-presentation skills. This qualification will help you move onto a degree-level course either at the IAB or elsewhere. To enter our BA (Hons) Musical Theatre you will still be required to audition alongside external candidates.

Our Master in Creative Performance Practice (Musical Theatre) is a new, innovative programme that synergises traditional musical theatre training with entrepreneurship and artistic research. The course offers artists an opportunity to develop their creative visions while gaining professional experience through collaboration and innovative partnerships with both experts and other students.
