Course Summary

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. 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. 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.
