Course description

For this reason it is highly valued by universities when students apply for degree courses especially Law, English, Media and Drama.

Throughout the course, students will perform in a variety of plays, study influential practitioners, look at the history of drama and participate in numerous vocal and movement workshops. Students will work with visiting professionals and see live performances such as plays, as well as physical theatre, dance, gigs and stand-up comedy.

Learners will have access to the Academy’s Theatre, Dance and Drama studios as well as the recording suite, for voice work. There will also be the opportunity to work within the local community and in professional theatre spaces.
