These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes.

By the end of Level 6, the student will be expected to generate a critical and realistic understanding of their present and future place in the Industry.
This module focuses on the student's training on the BA Musical Theatre Course and their comprehension of the Industry and their future within it. This is assessed by a Written Professional Profile Report (2,500 words). This report may give reference to training, but is mainly focussed on the student's plans for the first five years of work in the Industry.
A full brief of the requirements for this Written Professional Profile Report will be communicated to students via this module, and through tutor led group discussion.
