Integrated Foundation in Acting – Bath Spa University

Integrated Foundation Year

For Acting

Integrated Foundation and Undergraduate

    Experience a stimulating and rigorous introduction to professional acting.

    • Explore the building blocks of an actor's technique and learn what it's like to be a professional actor.
    • Expand and strengthen your vocal range and skills in movement with specialist classes and projects.
    • Bring together everything you've learned in a fully staged production at a professional theatre in Bristol.

    Due to Covid-19, we have made some changes to teaching and learning for the 2020-21 academic year: we have blended high-quality virtual engagement with in-person teaching on campus when possible. Blended learning will continue to some extent in the 2021-22 academic year and we will continue to keep the situation under review in light of ongoing Government guidance. If you’re planning on joining us in September 2021 we will communicate with you about specific details of how your course is taught nearer the time.


    Develop your acting skills before you pursue a degree course with our Integrated Foundation Diploma in Acting, delivered in partnership with Boomsatsuma. 

    You'll explore in depth some of the key building blocks of the actor's technique, and gain insight into the process and practice of being a professional actor. 

    As the year progresses, you'll begin to acquire advanced skills and knowledge in preparation for further study.

    Progress to our undergraduate Acting course

    The Foundation Diploma in Acting can only be taken in conjunction with Bath Spa University's BA (Hons) Acting degree. On successful completion of the Integrated Foundation in Acting, you'll then go on to start your undergraduate studies in Acting.
