Performing Arts students visited LIPA

8 February 2019

Performing Arts students visited the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA). 

Students who currently study Drama or Music Technology attended the university trip to explore the campus. While at LIPA, students were able to get involved in workshops that focused on their particular interests. They were able to find out about the range of courses available to them on completion of their college studies. 

Music Technology students had the opportunity to explore some of the industry equipment used on the LIPA degree programmes and gain an understanding of what studying at LIPA would be like. LIPA is an extremely creative community that pushes individuals to achieve and grow within and beyond the Performing Arts.

LIPA was formed in 1995 by Mark Featherstone-Witty RNOM OBE and Sir Paul McCartney, officially opening its doors to students in 1996. It is a specialist university offering courses such in Acting, Dance, Music Management, Performance, Sound Technology, Theatre and more. 

Last year saw two Performing Arts students gain a place at the prestigious institution.

Kudzai studied Drama, Sociology and Law at Ashton before applying to join LIPA. Through an extensive audition process, Kudzai was accepted to a study a degree in Acting.
