Performing Arts

“Studying drama at Excelsia means I am able to pursue all my passions both on stage and off. This course allows students to learn both the acting side of theatre, as well as the backstage side. We learn how to create a piece of theatre, be a director or a stage manager, or even be the designer in costume or props. There is a chance to do what they are interested in. Now I really learned a lot and want to try everything and I have learned so much in only a year. The lecturers care so much and are truly willing to help in any way they can. ”

"Studying the Bachelor of Music at Excelsia College has taught me many things about myself as a person, artist and student. The classes allow me to expand my musical knowledge and to gain more experience and wisdom from the excellent tutors that help encourage and push me to the best of my abilities. Studying music here has helped boost my confidence as a performer in the most humbling way, and also allows my faith as a Christian to not be compromised but encouraged to use it, to engage with my art."
