Classical & Contemporary Acting

Actor training has two distinct facets. The first to do with the holistic development of the human being that allows them to expand their imagination and empathetic capacities, to deepen their sensitivity to the broad spectrum of human experience and emotion, and to push the boundaries of their willingness and ability to connect with and express powerful and often painful feelings with freedom and authenticity. The second concerns the training of the actor’s ‘instruments’ – his/her body and their voice – and the mastery of the technical elements of performance that enables an actor to communicate effectively with an audience. These two facets of work often feel at odds with one another – pure feeling versus pure technique – but when an actor can build within him or herself a strong bridge between them, that is when the magic happens. And that is when the actor, as a skilled creative artist, is at his/her most powerful.... [-]

A great journey always begins with a first step.

Italy: synonym of wonder, especially for the new generations who live abroad and who wish to enter into contact with the culture and the educational system that the Beautiful Country is able to offer. The scenario assumed by RUFA to contact students attracted by Made in Italy, starts from this assumption not intended only as a sign of distinction and style, but also as a qualitative approach to life.

It is precisely in this context the foundation year fits in: a supplementary course of 60 credits, lasting one year, the objective of which is to initiate the student in cultural, design, historical and artistic subjects which they will encounter, in yet a deeper way, in the years to come. Thanks to this educational path, foreign students with 11 years of school attendance will be able to integrate the minimum prerequisite of the 12 required, before accessing the university system, supplementing their knowledge of basic subjects for the development of the required artistic, audiovisual, multimedia and design knowledge. Participants will also be able to find out about RUFA training methods, interacting with teachers, by integrating practical and theoretical methods, exploring the concepts of research and artistic production and best practices related to design....

Our Foundation Year prepares you for degree-level study at WBS and gives students the opportunity to build their knowledge about business, improve some key skills we have found to be important to success during the undergraduate degree, and spend a year getting used to the university environment.

We provide a diverse programme of events and activities, such as off-campus visits to businesses, guest lectures, careers workshops, and service projects, that build your confidence and can be experiences you draw from when you move on to degree level study.

We realise that there are bright, motivated students who are capable of succeeding in our courses who may not get the chance to because of circumstances beyond their control. It is well-known that students from disadvantaged backgrounds do not gain access to higher education at the same rate as other students – not because they cannot succeed, but because of barriers that make it difficult to prove they can. We believe strongly in facilitating access to these students.... [-]
