The Stage Scholarship - One-year foundation in Professional Acting

Established in 1981, Cygnet’s hands-on approach to drama training means that students are performing in front of paying audiences from the first term. Tutorials are delivered in classes from both the faculty and visiting industry professionals. Also, because Cygnet training is focused on live performance, students engage with other aspects of the industry such as stage management, lighting and costume. This style of training has been compared to the experience once earned by actors performing regularly in repertory theatre. There is also an option to continue training at Cygnet on its three-year course.
