University of Chichester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The University of Chichester Conservatoire has one of the largest and liveliest musical theatre departments in the UK with a community of over 400 student performers. You will get to showcase public performances with professional production teams for regional tours, major art festivals and to create and premiere new commissions. The BA (Hons) Musical Theatre and Acting for Film is a combination which allows students to choose their personal balance of singing, acting and dance work, whilst accessing a bespoke training in acting for film, voice-over, games and other media. In addition to taking part in two musical theatre productions each year in the second and third years of study, masterclasses given by visiting professionals in areas as diverse as stage combat and costume making provide exciting opportunities to work with leading practitioners alongside on campus, off campus and location film work.

Additional entry requirements
Prior to attending your interview, all applicants should prepare one short monologue (between 1 and 1 ½ minutes long) which will be used in an intense camera workshop. You should have the speeches thoroughly learnt and be off the book. There will also be an unrehearsed aspect to the audition, where candidates will be given a page of duologue from a film script to read with the assessor. You will also need to prepare a short piece of Music (about 3 minutes in length) so the tutor can hear you individually performing. If your piece has an accompaniment part, please bring this along so that our pianists can play alongside you (please don’t bring photocopies unless you have written permissions for these from the copyright holder). Alternatively, if you do not play an instrument or sing but compose music, please bring an example(s) of your works on CD. Acting, singing or playing in front of an audience is something that makes everyone feel a little anxious, so choose pieces that you feel shows you at your best and represents a style you feel comfortable with. It will be a relaxed and friendly interview; we try to make the experience as enjoyable as possible. We want you to be relaxed since this is when we are most likely to see the ‘real you’. It is also an opportunity for us to find out about why you might want to study here at Chichester, what you have done so far in your studies before university and your opinions about Acting and Music more generally. Be prepared, but don’t panic!
English language requirements
The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
