BA (Hons) Acting for Film offers you an intense focus on developing your practical skills in Screen Acting. You will develop your own bespoke acting approach from an introduction to a broader range of acting practitioners such as Meisner, Strasberg and Adler alongside the technical acting skills necessary for a convincing, truthful camera performance. Working with leading screen and film professional actors, directors and producers offers an opportunity to position yourself with a very strong offer for future performance work. You will also develop a knowledge of other aspects of film and screen acting and its history, and an understanding of the film and television industry and how this contributes to and reflects contemporary culture.

Programme structure

Delivered by highly experienced practitioners in film and television acting, directing and producing this course offers access from first year onwards to extensive practical training in screen performance.
