Overview

Transform your career and join an established, accredited drama school with our postgraduate qualification in acting. Designed to advance your practical and professional progress, our MA Acting course provides intense training from staff with rich industry experience.

Previous graduates of this course have gone on to succeed as established performers, including roles at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

You will be taught to maintain a high standard of skill and knowledge and how to transform into an independently-minded performer and practitioner. We will enhance your ability to reflect and analyse, through a range of concepts and ideas. You will enhance your technical skills through practice-based study, learning and developing flexibility to confront issues that you may experience within your profession.

Your classes will mainly be practical studio-based sessions, focusing on the practical application of acting, voice, movement and singing. You will also have time assigned for self-directed study, where you will further develop your work from practical classes. For some modules you will have timetabled rehearsal time, where you will work in groups to produce material.

Your studies will help to influence and shape your career. Previous graduates have been commended by industry for their innovative, challenging project work. Danielle Pinnock‘s final project, a twenty minute piece entitled BODY/COURAGE, won her the Best Actress award at the Strawberry Theatre Festival, and has since been performed internationally.

Career opportunities

We are incredibly proud of our graduates, and we are committed to offering you a high level of training, paving the way for your future acting career. Graduates of our MA Acting have gone on to work with organisations such as the Royal Shakespeare Company, The National Theatre, the BBC and ITV.

We also have graduates who have been successful in securing roles almost immediately after graduating. Recent graduate Rachel Delooze performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last summer. Another graduate has gone straight from the School into ‘Dunsinane’, a production staged by the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre of Scotland.
