UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 05 JUNE
Royal Birmingham Conservatoire’s acting and performance courses have been recognised as in the top three on offer from institutions in the UK.
The Guardian’s University Guide for 2019 ranked the Conservatoire’s acting and performance provision as third out of 87 institutions in the Drama & Dance category.
For prospective students unsure of which subject to study and at which university, league tables revealed by the Guardian allow them to see where institutions rank in relation to one another and for specific courses of study. The Conservatoire offers Bachelor’s (BA), Master’s (MA) and Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degrees to train the actors of the future.
The league tables are based on data collected by Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) and the National Student Survey.
The tables illustrate that Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, part of Birmingham City University, received a high score for student satisfaction with 91 per cent of those questioned stating that they were satisfied with the acting course overall, and 95 per cent were satisfied with the teaching they received.
This excellent result follows the 100 per cent overall satisfaction rating the BA Acting course received from its students in the 2017 National Student Survey, and comes at the end of an exciting year for the School (formerly Birmingham School of Acting) during which it has joined with Birmingham Conservatoire, and subsequently received the Royal Title from Her Majesty the Queen.
