  • Where are they now?

    Ryan Coxon

    Former BA (Hons) Musical Theatre Student currently training in the Urdang Academy

    Having auditioned for multiple drama schools in his second year at Pendleton Sixth Form College, Ryan was successful gaining places at institutions like Bird, however felt it wasn’t for him. Ryan wanted more training before moving on, so made the decision to stay at Pendleton and complete the HNC in Musical Theatre through the University Centre. The course itself really helped Ryan mature and refine his skills, preparing him for his next steps and helping him realise what he wanted for his career. Ryan believed that the staff were all so supportive and pushed him to his limits in the best way possible. Ryan is now in training at Urdang Academy and says he couldn’t have achieved this without all the help and support from the University Centre staff.
