East 15 Acting School’s BA Acting (International) course provides a complete preparation for careers in acting, tailored specifically for international students. Built on the methodologies that have helped establish East 15 as one of the most internationally respected drama training institutions in Europe, BA Acting (International) combines core actor training techniques with the skills required to create and produce bold, international work. The course develops your talent, imagination and skill, so that you graduate as a knowledgeable, professional actor with a creative approach, solid process, and the unique experience of belonging to an international performance community formed through artistic collaboration during your time at East 15. Due to the unique focus of BA Acting (International), EU and International students are encouraged to apply for this course. It is the three-year equivalent to a North American four year BFA course. BA Acting (International) is taught at our picturesque Loughton Campus which is located on the edge of East London and is just a short 30 minutes by underground train from the heart of the capital’s West End theatre district.
