Course Introduction

Intensive and vocational, BA Acting at Drama Centre London prepares you for direct entry to the profession while laying the foundations for a lifelong career as an actor. Special features of this undergraduate course, delivered as part of the Drama and Performance programme, include a methodological approach based on the work of teaching giants like Stanislavsky, and a well'attended Agents' Showcase. There's also a successful mentoring scheme to help you find your professional feet. Our Agents Showcase opens doors to professional opportunities during the later stages of the course: in recent years students still in training have secured prestigious professional engagements. You'll benefit from strong contacts with the profession, including regular visits by distinguished practitioners, visiting professors or directors. The course is taught at Central Saint Martin, King's Cross.
