One Year Foundation Course in Acting

READ College’s full-time, vocational Foundation Course in Acting is now entering its 9th year, and graduate destinations have included RADA, Central, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, East 15, Mountview, Rose Bruford, Fourth Monkey and many more. As a registered charity, we support students from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds with bursary funding towards tuition fees through our Access to The Arts ™ programme.

Students benefit from at least 27 hours of contact time per week, and study a wide range of plays, writers, practitioners and acting styles in classes led by leading industry tutors. Classes range from Improv to Classical Theatre, Vocal Technique to Physical Theatre, and Audition Preparation to Singing. Students also benefit from regular masterclasses with guest tutors from all of the major degree-level courses, to prepare them for auditions.

Our Foundation students graduate with the Level 4 ATCL Diploma in Performing, awarded by Trinity College London.

Over 96% of READ College graduates have been offered places at leading degree-level courses since the college opened, and our alumni now includes actors, directors and award-winning writers. Courses run from September to July, and applications are now open for our 2021 intake. Open days take place throughout the year, and we also run regular taster courses in the school holidays.
