Course & Program

Qualification Level: Foundation

Our Foundation Course in Acting takes students from all backgrounds and walks of life, and gives them the experience and confidence to succeed. Our personal approach is what makes READ the UK’s leading centre for Foundation Courses in the Performing Arts.

Class sizes are small, and we take a maximum of 15 students on our Foundation Course in Acting to make sure that we are able to work with each student individually and support them through their training. During an average week at READ College, Acting Foundation students will take part in the following classes:

• Acting – Improvisation, British Theatre, Brecht, Stanislavsky, American Drama, Classical Theatre, Restoration, Audition Repertoire
• Vocal – Speech & Verse, Vocal Technique, Ensemble Singing, Private Singing (during audition season)

Alongside these weekly classes, we have regular guest workshops and masterclasses with most of the major degree-level Drama Schools and Colleges, some of whom even come and run auditions here at READ to hand pick our students for their courses! Students graduate from our Foundation Course in Acting with the ATCL Level 4 Diploma in Performing (Speech & Drama), awarded by Trinity College London and equivalent to first year degree studies.
