We have strong links within Bristol's theatre network and regularly tour both in the region and internationally.
We celebrate the success of our students who have progressed to jobs in West End and Touring Musicals, Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre, Community Theatre, teaching and many others.
BIPA is more than professional training, with excellent industry connections students are frequently taking part in workshops, student led socials and international trips.
A high level of expectation and discipline is partnered with support and guidance, ensuring our students reach their full potential.
At BIPA we believe the day is not complete until you've made time to create. Students are encouraged to become more than just exceptional performers but also creative practitioners of their own work.
BIPA is home to over 20 productions a year based in our two professional industry theatres, The Olympus Theatre and Studio 22 alongside national and international touring performance projects.
BIPA being part of SGS College allows our students access to an unparalleled level of student support, facilities and academic provision. SGS is placed in the heart of Bristol - a vibrant, cosmopolitan city as diverse as our courses.
