About Wimbledon

Wimbledon sees performance as a way of connecting with others, approaching challenges and engaging with communities.

Wimbledon College of Arts has a long tradition of providing world class training in technical arts related to the stage, screen and theatre. With the introduction of acting courses, Wimbledon now trains professionals on stage and backstage, in front of and behind the camera. We want our students to be not only ready for industry, but also ready to challenge it.

Our courses

Wimbledon has around 800 students on our courses. Through the college's shared course projects, lectures and exhibitions, our students are encouraged to work collaboratively and are exposed to a wide range of disciplines and ideas.

Wimbledon offers undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses.
