BA (HONS) Acting

The BA (HONS) Acting degree is validated by Buckinghamshire New University. 

The BA (Hons) Acting is distinctive and unique.  It is a highly practical degree, with a intense schedule.  It is expected that students will be in the building from 9.30am until 5.30pm Monday to Friday.

As a small, intimate training school we feel especially able to cope with the specific demands of each prospective actor.

The three basic strands – Acting, Movement and Voice – inevitably overlap in practice and directly influence the work in all areas of the delivered curriculum.

Year One is concentrated with a range of knowledge, understanding and skills on the foundations of acting and the development of the reflective practitioner.
