Foundation Degree in Inclusive Performance

The Foundation Degree in Inclusive Performance is a two year, full-time course. It is nationally recognised as an accredited qualification and provides a pathway to a full BA qualification.

Students on this course play an active part in Chickenshed’s diverse and innovative performance work, learning through our unique, inclusive approach that provides practical experience in all the disciplines of inclusive performing arts. Music, dance, drama and musical theatre are all explored throughout the course, culminating in the opportunity to devise workshops and direct projects around issues that matter to you.
