The Stage Scholarship - BTec Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing Arts (Musical Theatre)

The BTec Level 3 is the academy’s original course and operates similarly to a degree. It’s packed with content and students undertake 30 to 35 hours a week including ballet, jazz, ensemble singing and acting classes, audition techniques and more. There is a production mounted every year in the academy’s own theatre – the Factory Playhouse. Students work in conjunction with a professional director, choreographer and band – but more importantly, perform in front of a paying audience.

Students do not have to apply through UCAS. Go to or email Quote ‘The Stage’ when applying.
