Sonipat-based World University of Design (WUD) has invited applications for admissions to undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD programmes in Performing Arts.

Admissions are open to a four-year programme in Bachelor of Performing Arts, a two-year programme in Master of Performing Arts and a PhD in Dance and Music with an option for a 2+2 or 3+1 UK degree.


The programmes are designed with a futuristic curriculum focussed on emerging trends in global performing arts scenarios, with comprehensive professional inputs in aesthetics, production, costume design, administration and use of digital platforms. All programmes are UGC approved.

Forms are available at

To take admission in the BPA course, candidates need to have successfully cleared class XII from a recognised school board. Candidates with a background in performing arts will be given preference at the time of admission.

The undergraduate course will prepare the student with a strong base in the theories of performance, the nuances of the classical, folk and contemporary arts, the rudiments of production and presentation along with an insight into the field of specialisation, like dance (classical or contemporary) or music studies (classical or modern).

They will be exposed to the practical and theoretical practices of performance and introduced to literary, historical, traditional and cultural explorations of performing arts across cultures, therapeutic practices and arts administration. As an extension of the learning received during the current crisis, the students will also be taught the use and control of digital media to promote and present the performing arts.

All the courses include elements of cross-media communication, both in written and spoken formats; language and presentation skills, storytelling as a core of the art of performance and acting (abhinaya) as an indivisible part of mastering the arts. Management is a core stream running through all the learning initiatives, preparing the students for a robust and buttressed future in the industry.

WUD's Performing Arts programmes are designed to prepare a thorough 'performing arts professional’ who is not only an expert in their chosen field of specialisation but also a thorough generalist in terms of performance management, production, promotion and presentation. The graduates will also be well placed to take advantage of opportunities being created in the Metaverse.
