Acting

Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, students may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer courses as preparation for a certain type of degrees. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Courses can be taught in a broad selection of fields of study.

Acting is the work of a person, an actor or an actress, in film, television, or theatre portraying a character and usually speaking or singing the written text or play.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

England is the largest of the four "home nations" that make up the United Kingdom. It is also the most populous of the four with almost 52 million inhabitants (roughly 84% of the total population of the UK).

This is a demanding course based on the traditional values of classical acting adapted to suit the needs of contemporary media. It is practical, not theoretical, and aims to equip you with all the skills and expertise you need to become a dynamic and courageous actor. So this means, for example, that the assessments you will undertake throughout the course are structured like auditions, rather than like tests, in order to give you experience of working to the highest possible standard in a high stakes situation.

The training is very much student-centred giving time for individual attention.

To audition you must be eighteen or over when the course begins and have thought carefully about pursuing professional acting training. Whilst academic achievement is not a prerequisite for entry, a degree of intellectual and emotional curiosity is important.... [-]
