Course summary

We believe this is a unique master's course, combining the academic study of performance with a practice-based approach to the art of acting.

It's ideal if you want to pursue a professional career in the theatre, to develop a deeper understanding of your craft and hone your performance skills.

What You Will Learn

We will lead you through the key building blocks to make your performance shine, giving you a complete grounding in a range of different approaches to acting.

So you will study naturalism, realism, contemporary devising, intercultural performance, production and practice as research.

You will look at the dynamically interrelated skills of acting, voice and movement and take a module in how to stage performances, during which you'll be mentored by members of a professional theatre company.

Your Future Career

The work you will be doing with theatre professionals and the constructive help and advice you will receive from professional actors throughout your course is all geared towards helping you establish yourself in the industry. Your final degree show will act as your showcase to attract agents and develop your professional networks.

By having your own mentor in the last six months of your course, you will not only gain important insight and advice about the technical aspects of acting but you will receive invaluable help in developing important contacts.
