Course summary

This is a unique professional course that has been designed specifically for overseas students. MA/MFA Acting (International) offers the full spectrum of acting skills, including voice, movement and singing and approaches to rehearsal and public performances. It draws on existing practice but supplements this work with specific teaching and learning processes especially suitable for overseas students.

The course focuses on advanced practical acting skills and also takes in the study of Shakespeare and other classical traditions. The MA runs for 1 year on a full-time basis and the MFA for 2 years. MA and MFA students take the same modules in their first year. In their second year, MFA students work within a repertory company format to present a range of fully-staged productions in each of the three terms, followed by a written dissertation or practical project.

MA/MFA Acting (International) offers regular classes, during the year, for English first-language and English second-language students. The English first language students (USA, Canada, Australia etc) concentrate on accent/dialect and received pronunciation (RP), while the second-language students focus more on accent, rhythm, stress and diction.
