This highly vocational Drama UK accredited programme is designed to provide you with the skills needed to become a successful professional actor for the stage, screen and recorded media. Acting is a demanding programme that aims to produce an artist who is physically and vocally flexible, and intellectually alive and curious. Over three years, you will work in a variety of genres and repertoires from classical to contemporary.

Alongside the core disciplines of voice, movement and acting techniques, you will develop a range of creative and transferable skills that will encourage you to become an independent thinker and motivated artist; an articulate and reflective practitioner equipped to succeed in an increasingly competitive profession.

  • You will receive outstanding career development and support during your study, working only with top professional people, including preparation for agents, casting directors and auditions.
     
  • Alongside numerous College-based performances, you will take part in an industry showcase in London and perform in a range of fully-mounted productions in professional venues.
