    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.


    This acting course will give you the training you'll need to be a working screen actor. It will focus on the distinctiveness of acting for film and television, not as a branch of theatre acting but as a unique discipline in its own right.

    Course content includes acting techniques, the connection of physicality and voice, the history and development of acting for the camera, character development, acting for camera techniques, motion capture, voice-over, commercial acting, industry insight and networking. You'll also appear in professionally-made films as part of the course, and leave with a comprehensive showreel screened to agents and casting directors.

    The course accepts around 24 students per year and is delivered in association with The Bottle Yard Studios, giving you access to one of the UK's most prestigious film and TV studios.
