With our master’s course in acting, you’ll develop the intuitive, intellectual and empathic qualities that drive you to perform at the highest levels of artistic practice.
Our course bridges the gap between a degree in other subjects – or previous acting experience – and the standard expected by the theatre, TV, film and recorded media industries.
Practical studio and rehearsal-based training with experienced practitioners is at the heart of this programme, which will be supported by regular opportunities to work with visiting actors and directors.
You’ll have a combination of core acting methods, physical and vocal skills classes, which you will then explore and put into practice in projects on naturalistic and heightened text, audio and screen performance.
You’ll then take on roles in professionally directed public performances selected from a wide and challenging repertoire, joining our other actors, stage managers, technical theatre, and design students as a member of the Richard Burton Company. And through your own research, production and performance of a solo project, you’ll gain the confidence to create original work for a public audience.
Classes on securing and sustaining work with professional casting directors and agents culminate in you joining our other actors in showcases to invited audiences of agents, casting directors and potential employers in Cardiff, London’s West End and New York (for American students).
