Do you have the determination and drive to achieve your creative potential? This BA acting course is designed to challenge and guide you to become an exceptional, independent artist. It will equip you with the knowledge, insight and techniques you need to thrive.

At the end of the course, you’ll be ready to contribute intellectually and imaginatively to the creative skills industry. You’ll be able to demonstrate your refined talent and performance abilities across a full range of dramatic work at the highest levels of the profession.

We won’t teach you just one methodology of acting, instead you’ll learn a wide range of techniques and skills, designed to provide you with the flexibility and knowledge to develop your own process and expression of the craft. These include traditional and established techniques and more contemporary techniques which harness the exciting world of new media.

We know learning technical skills and gaining a deep understanding of stage craft is important, but we also make sure our training techniques are up to date with the evolving world in which we live.

You’ll be encouraged to take an independent and imaginative approach to the craft, as you build a full range of relevant movement, voice, musical and acting skills.

Although rooted in established and traditional expertise, the skills you’ll learn will draw on the latest developments in the industry, enhanced both by the teaching staff’s know-how and by the advancements in performance technology which we have to hand in our future-facing facilities.

The ensemble is at the heart of how we’ll train you. Drama is a collaborative art form and we place great emphasis on the individual’s responsibility to the group and the group’s responsibility to the individual. This creates an atmosphere of mutual respect where creativity can flourish.

You’ll gain confidence during our organic training, learning that an authentic and enthusiastic approach is the best preparation for a life in a profession which will throw up constant challenges. You’ll learn how to meet these challenges head-on from the new knowledge and skills you’ll develop in your training.
