More about the course

This Acting course will prepare you for life as an actor on camera, stage or radio. As a student, you will train in our multi-million pound Performance Academy, where you will have access to state-of-the-art studios and facilities.

Our focus is to help you build a strong portfolio of acting experience, so that you can stand out at auditions. We will introduce you to camera and stage techniques and give you experience of working in classical, physical, contemporary and community theatre. You will learn about the history of theatre alongside acting techniques used in industry, such as Method, Chekhov and Classical.

You will learn how to effectively use expression, body, voice, timing and costume to portray convincing performances. You will also gain a better understanding of grass-roots theatre, learn how to write and direct your own work, and work as part of a production team.
