What students are doing

Images of Student Work

These images were all taken during the third year graduate productions that each of our students take part in in their final year at AUB. Recent productions include The Visit, an adaptation of As You Like It, As If, and Clydbourne Park. As a BA (Hons) Acting student, you’ll collaborate with students from our BA (Hons) Costume and Make-Up courses, to bring your productions to the stage – giving you valuable experience.
