This new acting and musical theatre programme has two aims: direct entry into the profession or as an addition to your Level 3 qualifications for pre-entry to further training onto a degree or alternative training programme.
You’ll need to be an instinctive and talented performer, interested in enhancing your existing experience and training to help you reach your career aspirations.
Average places available: up to 18 each year.

This programme can help you sharpen your competitive edge as a degree programme applicant, or as an emerging performer. While this programme is not a guaranteed passport to ours or other degree programmes, students who have studied with us in the past at the level of Foundation Certificate have been offered places at Arts Educational, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Drama Centre, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, Rose Bruford, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. As a performer, your ambitions may lie in theatre, the commercial musical theatre sector, film, television or radio.
This is a new course, but we previously ran a similar course in Performing Arts (Acting) and each year we conduct a survey of our alumni who completed that programme to find out what they did after leaving us. You can see the results for students from our Foundation and Diploma Acting programmes over the last three years by clicking on the factsheet.
