**Why choose this course** Actors are storytellers. They transport their audience to a different world, evoke their emotions, and connect with them on a level that is both intimate and infinite. Guildford School of Acting (GSA) is one of the UK's leading accredited drama schools, providing dedicated conservatoire training within a purpose-built environment on the University of Surrey campus. GSA's MA Acting focuses on practical actor training, provided through a series of project workshops and rehearsals supported by extensive classes in relevant technical skills. **What you will study** Our intensive MA Acting course offers you practical actor training focusing on technical skills in acting, voice and movement. These support a range of rehearsal projects, screen acting projects and public performances. You'll also take professional development workshops and classes in audition technique. Your performance opportunities will include a devised project, a final public production led by a production team of industry professionals, and a West End showcase. We keep our cohorts small to make sure you get personal attention and contact from our expert teachers, who have extensive first-hand experience in professional theatre in the UK and the US. Our beautiful campus boasts strong transport links to London, so you'll be close to the heart of UK theatre, London's West End. This means you'll not only receive forward-thinking training, but you'll also be well exposed to London theatre, cultural activities and highly beneficial industry networks.
