Course summary

This new degree will draw on QMU’s rich and highly respected teaching expertise within the performing arts. This exciting degree will combine intensive actor training with options that allow you to expand your skills to include areas such as community theatre, playwriting, directing, devising and creative entrepreneurship. The rich and varied curriculum means that the course will not only provide a distinctive and complementary course of actor training in the conservatoire tradition but will also provide you with the knowledge and skills required for the diverse range of ways in which you might wish to develop your career as an actor.Our teaching staff will use practice-led methods to explore the ways in which the skills you have already developed through further education can be modified and made appropriate to the constraints of different contexts, media and performance spaces. Core modules will support you to deepen your knowledge of the fundamental skills of acting, voice, movement, textual analysis and interpretation, examining the ways in which they are deployed and synthesised to create character and performance.This course enables you to convert an appropriate existing qualification into a degree and is equivalent to years three and four of an honours degree.As further details of this new course become available they will be updated on our website.
