BA (Hons)

About the Programme

The three year BA Acting programme provides a conservatoire training, enabling students to develop high levels of skill in acting, voice, movement and singing along with a theoretical and critical understanding of their own work and an understanding of the historical and contemporary context. This training allows the student to apply these skills in a wide variety of media including theatre, television, film, radio, and new media. The programme is for aspiring actors with passion, creativity, imagination and a real commitment to gaining and sustaining a lasting career in the performing arts.

The programme is based on the work of Konstantin Stanislavski and his followers, and uses this as a framework to explore multiple styles and texts. The student will also explore the works of many other practitioners and forms of theatre to give them the tools to develop as an individual creative artist, this will include skills in devising as well as a grounding in the practical aspect of creating their own work.

Intensive and Practical

The programme is full time and practical and is delivered through workshops, seminars, lectures, class and theatre based presentations, and one-to-one tutorials. Students are given constant feedback both formally assessed and in class, through presentations, observed classes, written essays and reports. As the programme progresses more time is spent on the rehearsal and production of projects.
