The BA (Hons) Top Up in Professional Arts Practice is a one year Level 6 qualification that allows students with a Level 6 Trinity Diploma to top up their qualification to a degree. Students on the course can choose an area of the Performing Arts to investigate and develop- this can be in performance or in another aspect of the Industry such as, for example, Performing Arts training or Arts Administration .

For example, this may be the performer who plans to move into teaching, events management or directing that would like to prepare for their career transition whilst upskilling to a degree.
