Our degree programme focuses on preparing actors to work and flourish, both on stage and screen. Using the camera as a teaching and learning tool, this course offers a uniquely creative springboard for innovative and confident actors.
You’ll graduate with all the practical, artistic and academic skills needed for a successful career in the competitive world of acting and performance. The course is practically based with a bias towards innovative assessment.
Our Acting & Performance course is ranked in the top 30 of drama and dance courses in the UK, according the The Guardian's 2017 university league table.
With a dual emphasis on recorded and live drama, you’ll be immersed in learning the core skills of voice and movement, along with the latest techniques for camera, microphone and stage. We’ll encourage you to draw on your own personality and background in your explorations and performances too.
With our strong track record for producing BAFTA and Oscar winners from across our media disciplines – and with first-class film and TV studios at our Farnham campus – you’ll be encouraged to work closely with peers on other courses, including Film Production, Animation, Creative Writing and Computer Games Arts. This way you’ll become part of our vibrant and collaborative creative community.
Our partnership with Farnham Maltings – a leading performance venue located in the heart of Farnham – means you’ll also benefit from its network of professional theatre makers and extensive resources, including performance and rehearsal spaces, and a screening room.
