Program content

The first year of the Acting (BA) programme concentrates on development of the basic blocks of any actor's training: Movement, Musical Performance, Improvisation and Acting, as well as developing study and collaborative skills.

The second year builds on these techniques, as we practically explore how these skills are applied to different areas of work, such as performing Shakespeare, contemporary plays and acting on screen.

The final year concentrates on applying training to a professional rehearsal setting as you perform in public productions. You will develop your skills in small scale projects as well as a major interdisciplinary production and also a site-specific/studio theatre production.

Exposure to these types of processes, along with an Independent project module, is your opportunity to explore your specific career path and will prepare you for your entry into the creative industries and beyond.

Throughout the course, students are supported by tutors and industry professionals as they build their confidence, techniques and cultivate their creativity as collaborators and performers.
