Backstage Academy Launches Postgraduate Degrees for January 2021

Backstage Academy is excited to announce 3 brand new postgraduate degrees for January 2021 entry. 

The new suite of full time, 1 year postgraduate programmes reflects the changing needs within the live events and creative industries as audience's consuming habits increasingly include, and are informed by, crossover technologies. 

There has been a rising demand for graduates who can confidently move between the different conventions and practices of live and mediated events and have the financial and business grounding to successfully navigate the post-COVID commercial landscape as the sector recovers. 

The programmes have been designed to be both relevant and current; preparing graduates for a sector which is likely to experience a lot of changes in the next few years.

"The development of our new postgraduate degrees is an important milestone as we celebrate our 10 year anniversary in 2021. We are pleased to be able to offer graduates the opportunity to advance their training as live events professionals in the unique environment of Production Park.”
