Acting Diploma at The North Somerset Creative Campus Course Length: 2 years
The leap from enjoying drama at school to working as a professional actor is huge. The depth of craft to take on and the range of skills to develop require total dedication and extraordinary mental and physical stamina.
Many young people arrive at drama school ill prepared. boomsatsuma’s new Professional Acting Diploma is an excellent preparation for drama school so young people aged 16 can, for the first time, really experience what acting training is all about and can get a head start learning their craft.
It has a drama school curriculum and ethos and is taught by expert staff who work in the industry. It’s for young people who are serious about acting so I think it’s a really exciting addition to the industry and I’m delighted to be its patron.
Course: RSL Diploma in Creative and Performing Arts (Acting)
UCAS: 84 Points - Equivalent to 1.5 A Levels
Duration: 2 years
“WHEN I HEARD ABOUT THIS COURSE I WAS THRILLED AS IT REALLY CAPTURED EVERYTHING I LOVED ABOUT ACTING AND IT MADE IT FEEL SPECIAL.”
HOW TO APPLY
You’ll need to be on track to get at least five GCSEs grades A*- C or a BTEC Level 2 Diploma (at merit or distinction). In exceptional cases we can take students who don’t have GCSE English or Maths at grade C or above and we can provide tuition in those qualifications alongside the course. Though experience of dance, drama or expressive arts subjects are advantageous in giving you a sense of what’s involved, we are more interested in raw talent and welcome your application even if you have had little or no experience. We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in the way we recruit.
