This class will be taught using a blended model of online learning and face-to-face teaching. The RCS campus will re-open in September with a limited capacity for degree students only to begin with. All classes on this course running in November and December 2020 will be taught online.
It is inspired by content from the first year BA Acting degree programme and students will benefit from a thorough induction to what is expected in a full-time acting programme.
Introduction to Actor Training is the only credit-rated short course of its kind currently on offer in Scotland. Students will have access to some of the facilities and resources which full-time degree programme students use and will be taught by experienced lecturers and theatre professionals
On successful completion of this course, students will have learnt key acting techniques, have a solid foundation of skills to build upon and earned 20 credits at SCQF level 6.
This course is open to anyone aged 16+ who is considering studying acting at degree level and wants a thorough introduction to basic acting skills. Entry to the course is by audition only – please see Entry Requirements for more information. Please prepare all necessary documents before starting you online application.
By the end of the course, students should have:
- been introduced to a foundation in realistic acting
- developed technical voice and movement skills required of an aspiring actor
- developed their understanding of what is required to study acting at degree-level in a conservatoire training
- worked with some of the Royal Conservatoire’s most respected acting staff
- been assessed on their performance and given critical advice on how to improve
Commitment, focus, energy and professionalism will be expected at all times by the teaching team and your fellow students. In this respect, the experience resembles that of the students on our BA Acting programme and gives you a taste of what life and study is like at drama school.
Please note, the completion of this course does not have any direct articulation with the BA Acting course or any other degree study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
The course will culminate in a performance exam and an informal sharing of work for family and friends on the final day.
