City College Plymouth has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This foundation degree will focus entirely on acting for digital media (Film/ Audio/ Presenting) and will develop actors for the digital entertainment industry.
The course is taught by professionals currently practicing in the industry. Students benefit from a rich mix of actor-specific training for digital media, and will graduate with an intellectual and practical understanding and knowledge of the actor’s craft.
