Course Introduction

This unique programme is designed for students who are interested in acting, drama and the creative industries.

Skills learned in the taught classes and the devised exercise will prepare them for their chosen progression route to Acting, English & Drama or BA Technical Theatre

While on the course, students will have the opportunity to audition for the BA Acting.

The Foundation Year provides the opportunity to practice voice, acting and movement; learn script writing; develop the technical skills required for working in theatre; and be introduced to the business side of working in the industry.

The three year BA Acting programme helps you develop practical, holistic acting skills. You get 30 contact hours a week for 30 weeks of the year. Our tutors are industry professionals who bring their experience and knowledge into our studios.

Our Voice and Movement classes develop the core skills you will need as an actor. Acting classes hone your imagination, technique and stage and screen craft. In the Performance classes you can be playful, experimental, spontaneous and collaborative. The Contextual Studies stream investigates where your work fits into the wider world, both past and present.

In your first year you will build a firm base for your training. This serves as a base for developing your craft in year two through in-house productions and workshops. In your final year you begin your career with public productions, links to industry professionals and a graduate portfolio.
