Hi all. Im currently in Y11 and have applied to a number of colleges to study musical theatre/performing arts at BTEC level. My likely desitination will be Manchester College (Im from the North West).
Looking slightly further ahead, I would appreciate it if anyone could give me some advice as to the best places to study PA/MT at degree level.
What would have been ideal for me is if LIPA offered such a course but unfortunately, the only two performance degrees they seem to offer is Acting and Music. I cant understand why the Liverpool Institute of PERFORMING ARTS dont seem to offer a Performing Arts degree.
My first option seem to be to either attend a local university/college offering a degree course, but Im not sure how that will be viewed by the industry. Will I just be wasting 3 years and get a degree that will be looked down on at auditions?
Other than that, travelling to London, but then where would people recommend? I dont know too much about the London based Unis or whether I should be looking at somewhere like Mountview.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
Who do you think it is...
