Course : BA (Hons) Musical Theatre (validated by City University of London) – 3 years, full time

Course Details

ArtsEd provides the definitive triple threat musical theatre training, enabling students to become imaginative, all-round performers, confident in each of the three core disciplines of dance, singing and acting. Training in all three disciplines continues throughout the three years.


teaching focuses on intensive training in the core dance disciplines required by today’s performers: jazz, ballet and tap, supported by weekly classes in pas de deux and, in first year only, contemporary.


Students singing is developed in weekly one-to-one technique and repertoire tuition, whilst group sessions prepare them for ensemble work.

Acting, Singing and Dance Projects in first and second year, together with Acting through Song, Lift Off and short song and dance presentations provide the opportunity to apply two or more of the core disciplines in performance.

The third and final year of the course is the production year. Each student will perform in public productions of two full scale musicals in either the studio theatre or our new state-of-the-art Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Theatre, and in a Showcase performance for an invited audience of industry figures including casting directors, agents, producers, directors and choreographers. A final term of professional practice workshops provides the opportunity to work on new musicals with professional creative teams, and to gain a wide range of additional performance skills.

Throughout the final year, the school actively promotes each student to the industry, and provides a range of opportunities for students to demonstrate the skills they have developed during their training. As well as public productions, opportunities include auditions for major casting directors and creatives, often leading directly to students’ first professional work immediately after graduating. ArtsEd graduates can be seen in musicals across the West End and UK in major producing houses and touring productions.


 The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Scholarship will be awarded by the School as part of the audition/selection process on the combined basis of merit and financial need. Please note students will be means tested for scholarship eligibility. The Scholarship will cover course fees only and will be reviewed on an annual basis. There will be one available Scholarship for the year 2017/18.

Please note that applications made directly to The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation will not be considered.
