On one level it is a thoroughly practical, highly intensive, vocational course. On another level, it is a thought-provoking, life-changing reflection on the function and art of the actor – exploring techniques from some of Europe’s most influential practitioners as well as innovative professional practice from the UK and internationally.
MA Acting is a specialist course of one academic year with additional work on marketing students to the industry in a showcase. You will need discipline and motivation to work at an advanced level. Beyond these the requirements are abundant energy, insatiable curiosity and a robust sense of humour.
Some students may already possess a university degree (not necessarily in a related discipline) whilst others will have established themselves in other career paths and now seek to change the direction of their lives towards that of a professional actor.
This course also attracts professional actors who feel the need to reflect on their practice, extend their range, refresh their creativity, increase their professional contacts and gain academic recognition for their skills.
• Our applicants need to undertake a successful interview, plus have a first degree of Upper Second Class or suitable previous life and/or professional expertise.
