Birmingham City University

Acting

As the balance of the course develops from technical skills to performance, students move from internal workshops to fully staged public performances.

Entry requirements

Admission is by audition, but we would normally require a degree course or equivalent, or relevant professional experience. The course is also suitable for professional actors seeking a refresher course. The MA option is designed for those with suitable academic abilities.

Course modules

In the 1st term, students participate in 2 internal workshop productions performed only to staff. In the 2nd term, two further workshops are performed; the 1st to staff and students, and the 2nd as a performance to invited guests. In the 3rd term, the balance of the course is predominately performance-based. In addition, students receive career management and technical classes.

Assessment methods

All classes are compulsory and are subject to assessment. All modules are taken into account for the final differentiation of the award Distinction, Commendation, Pass to reflect the level of technical ability achieved and the assimilation of these skills into performance.
