We aim to produce versatile, creative and thoughtful actors, able to take responsibility for shaping their own careers. We offer you a rigorous programme of technique, rehearsal and performance practice through a wide range of repertoire in both live and recorded media. This is combined with classes that encourage you to cultivate yourself as an enterprising, self-reliant actor with the necessary business acumen to find and create work to achieve a sustained career. Average places available: Up to 36 each year.

Assessment takes place during your practical classes and rehearsals, performances and your reflective journals. Overall, assessment is largely based on applications of technique in performance situations, either in front of an audience or in workshops. The written element is focussed on your future career, your working environment and critical life skills. In your third year, you undertake an optional practical or written research project. Again, career focussed, this is chosen by you.
