Overview

The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts opened in 1996 to forge a new approach to performing arts training. It was co-founded by our Lead Patron Sir Paul McCartney and Mark Featherstone-Witty, Founder, and is housed in his old school, which underwent a multi-million pound renovation to transform it into a state-of-the-art performing arts higher education institution. Today LIPA is an acknowledged part of the UK's higher education provision for the performing arts, recognised and ranked alongside institutions a lot older. LIPA provides learning for the main skills needed for putting on a show (performers and those who make performance possible), uniquely blending specialist and generic skills. LIPA offers degree courses in Acting, Applied Theatre and Community Drama, Creative Technologies & Performance (BA (Hons)/MArts programme), Dance, Management of Music, Entertainment, Theatre & Events, Music, Sound Technology, Theatre and Performance Design and Theatre and Performance Technology. We also run full-time one year Foundation Certificates in Acting, Dance and Popular Music and Music Technology. To further develop your skills we offer full-time one year masters-level degree courses in Acting (Company) and Costume Making. We train students for a future of sustained work. Most recent figures have shown that over the most recent four year period, 89% of LIPA's graduates are in work four years after leaving, while 78% work in the performing arts. To achieve this, our curriculum is constantly being revised.
