Good news! We are still taking students for our FDA courses. You can apply through clearing. 

If you would like to develop your passion for performance and become a well-rounded circus and physical theatre artist, our Foundation Degree is for you. 

We’re one of only two places in the UK to offer circus education at degree level. A two-year full time Foundation degree at Circomedia is aimed at students aged 18 or over who wish to develop as well-rounded circus-theatre performers. It’s your chance to try out a range of circus and physical theatre disciplines, before specialising further in an area of your choice.

See where studying on our Foundation Degree can take you

In your first year, we’ll introduce you to the basic building blocks of circus and physical theatre, helping you develop your professional technique. You’ll have the opportunity to try out a range of circus disciplines including juggling and manipulation, acrobatics, aerial and more, before specialising later on. You will also develop physical theatre techniques, dance, use masks, and try clowning and street theatre. In addition, you’ll be encouraged to explore the history of circus and performance. You’ll be required to complete written assignments on the cultural context of circus. 

You’ll have frequent chances to devise new and original work that you’ll perform at our student shows.

If you would like to apply for the course ready to start in September, you still can. You will need to go through clearing and to find out how, simply email [email protected]
