Professional Acting – BA (Hons)

The Three Year BA Honours Degree in Professional Acting is designed for those who have no tertiary education history.

We want our actors to go into the profession confident that they can hold their own in any of the main areas of the business, from classical plays and modern classics to animation films and musicals. To this end we develop their voices and their speech, their bodies and their movement, their creativity and their knowledge of the approaches and techniques of acting.

During the first year of the course Students are trained in Voice, Dialect, Vocal Exploration, Interpretation of Text; Movement, Pilates, Alexander Technique, Period Dance, Musical Theatre, Stage Combat, Acting Technique, Text Study, Singing, Improvisation, Audition Practice, Radio Drama and Microphone Technique, Television and Camera Technique.

Applications to this course are via UCAS Conservatoires. For more information about this course and how to apply, visit the school course page.
