About this course

1.0year

Full-time | 2021

Are you looking for an intensive acting course in prep for a career in the performing arts?

Our one-year course in Acting (HNC) provides a comprehensive foundation year, concentrating on developing performance techniques in Acting, Movement and Voice, an exploration of professional practices, enhancing self-discipline and independence. It is designed to provide participants with the skills required to audition for leading drama schools, and for the demands of the performing arts industry.

Emphasis will be given in the first term preparing for auditions at drama schools, ensemble performance and personal development. As members of our ‘IntAct’ Theatre Company students will be given numerous performance opportunities both on and off campus. Recent student cohorts have been the core ensemble of our successful productions at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Students will also undertake research into performance practices, which will produce work within the scholarly conventions appropriate to an undergraduate level of study.

Special features of the programme include:
- Small cohort ensures personalised support

- Preparation for drama school auditions

- Performance opportunities

- Close to Chichester Festival Theatre

- Full Graduation Ceremony at Chichester Cathedral

Modules

During this program the students will further develop their basic acting skills, which will be delivered by modules covering acting practice (acting techniques, audition skills) , rehearsal and performance skills, technical skills (voice, singing and movement) and contextual studies (script analysis and research skills).
All of the rigorous practical research, modules and projects and academic exploration, will produce work within the scholarly conventions appropriate to an undergraduate level of study.

Assessment methods

Assessment methods include range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations, as well as written examinations and a final year major project. The grades from formal assessments count towards your unit mark.
The balance of assessment by examination and assessment by coursework depends on your course choices.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
