What you'll study

Four Rose Bruford College Acting Part-Time students performing in a production

We are delighted to be able to offer this new online course, which is based on our hugely successful and established in-person Acting Part-time course. Having adapted the mode of teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic, and successfully delivered online learning, we are now offering an exclusively online programme, in order to enable learners who are further afield or with other commitments a chance to explore their interest in Acting.

This online course offers a one-year introduction to the skills associated with TV and film acting.  It is tailored to those who want to learn about the craft of TV and film acting,  and learn how to develop their own physical, vocal and imaginative skills, and explore the dramatic text in performance.

You may always wish to look at our Acting Part Time course that is taught at our Sidcup campus.

“One of the best things that has happened in my life is the day you accepted me onto the course.”
Amal El Hawrani
Acting Part-Time Student
APT was an amazing two years of my life where I learnt to trust myself in making mistakes but committing to an idea or action and finding out if it worked or not. I learned a lot about acting whilst I was at Bruford and it has helped me since leaving.
