MA Professional Acting
The ALRA MA Professional Acting Course (15 months) is a full time actor training programme that has three taught terms followed by two performance terms; including a theatre production, filming showreel scenes and showcases/panels in both London and Manchester regardless of which campus you choose to study at.
Students work individually and as an ensemble with projects in screen acting as well as radio and theatre acting, movement, voice and other techniques which are useful to the professional actor with opportunities for audition practice to a professional panel.
ALRA’s postgraduate modules focus on the skills and techniques needed for professional acting today. The MA Professional Acting programme encourages you to view your performance practice as continual development and as a means to further your particular strengths.
This is a highly practical course with a comparatively high amount of contact hours which reflects the demands of the industry students are preparing to enter.
It is expected that you will have:
- An undergraduate degree or equivalent. This can be in any subject area of study. If not available, exceptional ability and/or considerable life/work experience can be taken into consideration, although a preliminary course is required to allow you to follow the non-academic admissions route.
- You must be at least 18 years old at the start of the course, although ALRA welcomes older students, especially those who are thinking about a career change.
