**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. Our new and innovative MFA Acting will train future generations of internationally renowned performers and teachers. Delivered by Guildford School of Acting (GSA), one of the most highly regarded theatre schools in the UK, this course will provide you with internationally-renowned actor training alongside a sterling reputation and excellent industry links. **What you will study** Our new and innovative MFA in Acting builds on the success of GSA's current postgraduate course by extending the intensive training currently offered on our one-year MA Acting programme. Our MFA Acting course is highly selective and intensive. You will train for four semesters over two years, taking classes in acting, voice, movement and professional development, exploring a wide range of theatre traditions and performance styles in rehearsal projects and public productions. This unique course is delivered by expert teachers with extensive first-hand experience in the professional theatre sector in both the UK and the US. Our beautiful campus boasts strong transport links to London, meaning our students can easily benefit from GSA's close proximity to the heart of UK theatre, London's West End. This means our students not only receive world-class training, but are also well exposed to London theatre, cultural activities and highly beneficial industry networks.
