Guildhall School of Music & Drama: Training Actors

InstitutionGuildhall School of Music & Drama
Department Drama
Study type Taught


This two-year full-time programme is aimed at graduates who are committed to training actors and exploring the art of acting.

The programme is led by specialist leading practitioners in association with professional theatre companies and leading drama schools. Students specialise in either Voice or Movement throughout the course of their studies and follow an integrated programme with emphasis on their chosen discipline.

The programme content draws on a long tradition of actor-training in the UK and abroad. The programme maintains a very small cohort of students in order that each student is able to develop their knowledge and skills under close guidance. Students enjoy close links with the BA and MA Acting programme and with the professional theatre.

At the core of the programme is intensive observation of actors in training, supported by seminars and tutorials. In addition, students undertake a practice-based research project and participate in a placement in a major theatre company, drama school or other appropriate organisation.
