First-class degree and special award for University Courses Burnley graduate Georgia

An ambitious and talented graduate of University Courses Burnley has earned a first-class degree in Community Theatre and Performance - and earned a special award in the process.

The Employer Project Award recognised the student who has produced a project with the most impactful contribution to a business.

It was awarded to former St Augustine’s RC High School student Georgia Burrows (22), from Burnley, who achieved a first-class BA Hons degree in Community Theatre and Performance and who has returned to University Courses Burnley to gain a PGCE qualification which will allow her to teach within Further Education.

She said:

“I gained D*D*D n my Advanced Level Performing Arts studies as a Burnley College Sixth Form Centre student and knew that the Tutors had the expertise that would help me achieve a great degree, too. It’s been great to study with Tutors I know in familiar surroundings, too.

“I’m passionate about performance: it’s like taking yourself to another world and exploring all the different characters you can become. I’m really looking forward to sharing my love of theatre with a new generation of students now.”

Ambitious Georgia created a unique piece of children’s theatre that was staged at a local nursery, entertaining the children and introducing them to new foods. The piece, based on the popular children’s book The Hungry Caterpillar, so impressed nursery leaders they have asked to be informed of all future performances created by degree students.
