Key Features of the Acting Programmes

drama education

Our Acting programmes are contemporary: they are rooted in current practice, research, and performance, while retaining the essential elements of conservatoire actor training. They also reflect the international nature of our teaching faculty, students, and location.

The teaching faculty is made up of highly experienced international professionals who combine successful careers in the industry with experience working in higher education. Our programmes are practice-based, you will learn through doing, and develop a clear set of practical skills in Acting, Voice and Movement. Alongside this you will gain knowledge and skills in critical thinking to enable you to become an autonomous and collaborative professional practitioner capable of creating your own work.

All our classes are taught in English as a shared language to deliver our training. When you graduate you will have acquired a highly practical and transferable acting technique and graduate skills, that will allow you to work in your own language as well as within the English-speaking industry.
