Anne McNulty, Casting Director, Michael Grandage Company
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.
Public funding is available for this course. Find out details of the different funding options and fees.
