About this course
This course provides an intensive three-term, 45-week programme of vocationally-driven study and practice. The postgraduate acting course ensures that each individual student is nurtured, encouraged and advanced through rigorous personal and professional development.
Delivered by actors, directors and other key industry professionals, this course provides practical techniques and skills which enable innate acting ability to flourish. Study is carried out through direct engagement in practical work. As a one-year course there is much ground to cover and students must be prepared for hard work.
