Wimbledon College of Arts has a long tradition of providing world class teaching in technical arts for theatre, film and television.
We believe in a non-hierarchical and inclusive approach to performance. That means we see all elements as equal partners. Whether it be acting, directing, writing or designing. In 2018 we set out to create an integrated performance environment.
Our courses now include acting, costume, production and theatre design.
A place to grow
Collaborative performance is a key part of the experience at Wimbledon. We design many of our course projects with that in mind. Students often work in teams to produce theatre, performance and other live events. This reflects working practices within industry.
We want to develop your creativity, technical ability and professionalism. And it is these qualities that enable many of our graduates to go on to have successful careers. Our alumni include costume designer Lorna Mugan, production designer Sarah Greenwood and set designers Simon Costin and Soutra Gilmour.
Build a network
Wimbledon College of Arts has well established national and international industry links. These include 2 of the United Kingdoms leading theatres the National and the Lyric. Many of our staff are practicing professionals in their field. These connections allow students to gain valuable work experience.
Space to perform
Our facilities include specialist workshops, studios and an on-site professional theatre. In summer 2020 Wimbledon began a multimillion-pound investment programme. The planned improvements will enable us to nurture the performance talent of the future. We want our students to be not only ready for industry, but also ready to challenge it.
