We are thrilled to now be offering a new postgraduate MFA in Professional Acting with Independent Production. Validated and awarded by the University of West London the MFA provides advanced actor training, alongside rigorous academic study and performance research, and includes two international residencies.
We also offer an undergraduate 3 year BA (Hons) in Professional Acting now in partnership with University of West London. This 3 year course maintains the integrity of the vocational, practice-based training whilst ensuring the academic rigour required by a degree.
We also offer part-time and short courses throughout the year for aspiring actors and writers. We offer Open Days for potential students wishing to see what we offer - at this present time we cannot offer face-to-face Open Days. We will, from time to time, run online Q&A sessions for our courses. See individual course pages for details.
