Recently graduates have appeared in BBC dramas, at the Globe Theatre, Lyric Theatre and other London venues, UK national tours and at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield. Our graduates work across the industry not only as actors but also in related creative roles such as stage management, casting, agent, teacher, director and running their own companies.

You’ll learn the voice, movement and singing skills you need as a creative artist. You’ll try your hand at everything from classical acting to contemporary performance, on stage and on film.

A practical approach equips you for a variety of roles

Show business is notoriously demanding. We’ll give you practical insights and help you build motivation and self-discipline. Even the strong academic element is approached through practice to underline the vocational nature of this course.

Your skills will be in demand even while you’re here. The University’s Film, Costume and Make-up courses constantly draw on our actors; you’ll work with these and students from other courses to create professional quality film and theatre productions in various locations including our own studio theatre and other public venues. Your professional networking for industry begins right here.
