|Degree:||Bachelor of Arts (Honours) (BA (Hons))|
Acting, Theatre & Dance
Push boundaries to become a progressive actor in a highly creative and collaborative environment. Based in a vibrant, supportive community, you’ll develop an in-depth range of practical acting techniques for theatre, performance and recorded media.
Throughout this innovative acting degree, you'll learn the skills needed to succeed as a 21st Century performer in a fast-moving industry. Supporting you will be practicing staff, who'll nurture your individual talents, encourage self-reflection and guide the creation of your own work.
Our graduates have gone on to work in film, digital media, national theatre companies, advertising, radio, and performance companies of all sizes.
Focusing on practical skills, you'll learn from working industry professionals while studying voice and speech, textual analysis, physical expression and behaviour, and imaginative and real interactions with space, set and design. You'll also study collaborative and ensemble approaches to creative acting and performing.
This acting degree has a strong focus on practical work, so you'll perform from the first year onwards. You'll gain first-hand experience from workshops with international practitioners, cross-departmental collaborations with film, TV and games courses, and regular residencies and performances from new and established companies, ensembles and performers.
Core vocal and physical training, approaches to acting, and intensive production projects will help you explore and grow as an actor and performer.
You'll spend an average of 15-18 hours per week in study and in contact with staff, with extended hours during productions, and extra time dedicated to student-led rehearsals. And you'll share lectures and group seminars on acting and performance theories and practices with BA(Hons) Theatre & Performance.
