Develop your acting skills to a professional standard, while exploring English literature, and gain a deep understanding of the relationship between text and performance.

Acting is the practical realisation of text and is closely linked to the discipline of English. This course allows you to develop your acting skills while studying English literature, giving you a firm knowledge base from which to work in either field.

This unique combination of study will open up many options for work or further academic study. You’ll have a range of options, which will allow you to tailor the' course to fit your particular interests, and have the chance to develop allied skills such as theatre directing.

Acting classes cover acting for both stage and screen, and will include substantial workshop performances as well as public productions in the final year, including the opportunity to present your own fully supported show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

When you leave the course you’ll be armed with a career action plan, a show reel and significant experience in both acting and English.
