Program description

Acting (Film, TV and Stage) With Foundation Year

This course is offered as a four year Program, including an initial Foundation Year. You may also be interested in our three year BA (Hons) Acting course.

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

If you’re looking to break into acting, this degree is an excellent launch pad – with an equal focus on both screen and stage, and lots of opportunity to test out different performance styles and techniques.

You’ll get to fine-tune and extend your acting skills, working on live briefs and diverse projects – and build the contacts and entrepreneurial ability essential to securing work as an actor.

Learn the theory and the practice

Through practical workshops, and looking at the relevant literature, we’ll take you through different acting styles and techniques, including method acting, physical theatre, postdramatic styles and more abstract approaches.

Working with our professional experts, you’ll consider a range of acting methods from the last 100 years, and try out different styles and ideas you can integrate into your own performances.

We’ll support you to find a performance approach that’s uniquely yours, and set you up with the real-world skills you need to secure acting work when you graduate.

An education that inspires you and makes you think

You’ll create your own performances, including your own shows, films and short scenes – and take things in the direction that interests you, whether that’s directing or devising, or focusing on a particular theory, piece of research or playwright.

In your final year, you’ll manage your own significant screen or stage-based production, from conception to venue booking, marketing and performance.

You’ll also set up your own artistic company, and learn about all the elements involved in that, from budgeting and funding applications to promoting yourself as a professional artist.

Prepare to work on both the screen and stage

Unlike many acting degrees that focus primarily on the theatre, this course covers on-screen acting, too. With a lot of acting work coming from on-screen avenues, we’ll get you ready to capitalise on film, TV and online opportunities as well.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the entrepreneurial flair, and strong grasp of both stage and screen work, to position yourself confidently as an inspiring and creative practitioner that people will want to work with.
