This exciting new course accredited by the University of the Arts London has been designed to develop your professional skills in acting and provide you with essential industry experience, knowledge and opportunities to enhance your CV and employment prospects.

This course is aimed at students who wish to gain more experience working in a professional setting before auditioning for top Drama Schools or professional work. This course is unique in that it is fully funded for anyone who is 18 or 19 years old at the time of enrolment (Advance Learner Loans are available for anyone 19+). In 2018 – 19 we were one of only 10 centres nationally approved to run this course.
