Bachelor of Arts in Performing Arts (Acting)

This course is designed to provide graduates with the skills to work as actors in theatre, film and television. Coursework includes skills classes, workshops, masterclasses from industry professionals and performances in the Institute’s Black Box theatre.

Throughout the three years, you will be introduced to the main acting genres and be given a range of approaches to acting. In addition to vocal and movement skills, you will learn how to create characterisation. Although we will want to see you develop as a creative individual, you will also learn to be part of an ensemble.

Although the training is essentially practical, it is important that an actor learns how to intellectually engage with the text and become an informed actor. To this end, Cultural and Performance Studies will engage you with cultural and historical backgrounds and will explore a range from textual analysis to performance art.

In addition to an experienced staff, you will work with other industry professionals in masterclasses and workshops to extend your range of approaches to self, text and audience.
