Course summary

East 15 Acting School’s Advanced Professional Theatre Practice course is a blended learning course designed specifically for established professionals currently working or teaching in the performing arts. Our unique program allows you to continue to work on professional projects whilst integrating your professional practice and knowledge with academic and practical learning.

The degree is delivered through a combination of online study with intensive live workshops and uses your existing professional and teaching practice as a medium for development and exploration. This flexible approach means that you can live abroad or study with us alongside your personal or professional commitments whilst developing your practice as a theatre practitioner, teacher, director, designer, dancer, or interdisciplinary artist with a specific interest in theatre and performance.

Applicants must either have an established professional profile (including formal or informal training) in live performance, i.e., actors and other performers, directors, designers, stage and production managers, or practitioners holding a Diploma from an accredited conservatoire or hold a BA degree and experience in a relevant field.

Your future

On completion of the MA Advanced Professional Theatre Practice program, you are recognised as a graduate of East 15 conservatoire training, equipped with the ability to build on your existing professional knowledge and further identify and develop your skills through research in a professional environment moving forward.
