Professional Acting – MFA

This one-year Masters level course gives up to 14 International postgraduate students from outside the EU the opportunity to study in Bristol on an intensive forty week conservatoire course.

There is a strong emphasis on developing the actor’s voice and body and a commitment to building performance through close text work.

The MFA in Professional Acting is a rigorous actor training programme available to students from outside the EU who are seeking graduate-level study at a world-class school.

While the majority of Bristol Old Vic Theatre School acting programmes are reserved for UK and European residents only, this programme offers that same world-class conservatoire training to fourteen students carefully selected from North America and around the world.

Applications to this course are through UCAS. For more information about this course and how to apply, visit the school website.
