It will enable you to experience the rigours of vocational training and enable you to make informed choices about your future.

You will train in the professional and disciplined environment of a leading drama conservatoire and profit from the knowledge and experience of the staff working within the Academy.

Individual sessions working on interview technique and monologue preparation will help to maximise your chance of success in future auditions. You will be encouraged to develop a self-reliance and independent working process on a programme that emphasises the importance of respect within the rehearsal room, generosity and a shared passion. Above all, the Academy aims to generate an atmosphere of security that will allow you be creatively fearless.

A series of organised theatre visits and excursions will develop your awareness and appreciation of current theatre practice. You will learn how to critically evaluate contemporary performance and to express your ideas with clarity and confidence, thereby improving your self-promotional skills.
