Foundation Course into the PG Cert (Voice Pedagogy)
The foundation course into the PGCert is an innovative new offering from the Voice Workshop that is designed to facilitate access into higher education for those who may otherwise be unable to do so. This course was formed as part of the Voice Workshop’s Corporate Social Responsibility programme and came from the Director of Studies’ desire to tackle inequalities within higher education access.
As such, this course is designed for students who do not have the relevant qualifications to be eligible for the PGCert or MA program. This course facilitates the development of academic writing skills, ability to read and research academic papers and ability to keep to a tight deadline. During this course, we commit to intensively tutoring students so as to minimise the academic and financial cost of non-completion.
This course is a 3-month programme and is structured to mimic a PGCert module in Music Performance Anxiety. There will be 4 hours of online classes and lectures, as well as full access to the Voice Workshop academic library. These classes and resources are designed to introduce you to the module topic and then allow you to formulate an essay question on which you will be assessed. The essay will be 4,000 words and you will be supervised by a tutor throughout the writing process.
Upon completion of the course, and conditional upon a student submitting the essay to be marked and graded as passed, the student will be able to enrol on the Voice Workshop/UWTSD PGCert. The foundation course fee will be deducted from the full cost of the PGCert and the graded essay will be allowed as submitted work. This means that all your work from the foundation course will be carried on to the next stage of your higher education journey.
The fee for this course is £750.
