The Collaboration

Bath Theatre Academy is a unique collaboration between Theatre Royal Bath and Bath College.

Our Level 3 Extended Diploma course is a popular, vibrant, high-quality example of what can be achieved when you combine industry with education.

Drawing on the expertise of professionals from the theatre industry and combining this with the robust educational frameworks of Bath College, the course synthesises art and education to ensure that the next generation of theatre-makers are equipped with the skills, experience and passion to confidently enter the workplace or take their next steps in Higher Education.

Theatre Royal Bath is a historical building comprised of three auditoria. Centuries’ worth of actors have trodden the boards of the Main House; the Ustinov Studio is deemed a theatrical powerhouse, presenting highly-acclaimed programmes of world and UK premieres; and The Egg Theatre for young people is recognised internationally as a hub of innovation, creativity and artistic development.
