BA in Acting:
Acting is about performance, live or recorded. Our degree course ensures that final assessments reflect this through a Velocity Exit course structure. Final assessment is on performance when you bring together all the skills you have learnt throughout the course.
Throughout the course students are taught in a variety of small and large classes (maximum 16) depending on the nature of the class. Rehearsal and Performance groups are divided according to the Level of study and the learning needs of the cohort. Play selection throughout Years 2 and 3 will vary from large ensemble pieces to much more intimate, small cast plays.
BA In Stage Management:
This course is aimed at those who wish to work within company, production and stage management and will offer a thorough vocational training in aspects of technical theatre.
These courses at Birmingham School of Acting provide adults, young people and children the opportunity to develop their interest in drama. Entry to part-time courses is open to all and students are grouped into appropriate teaching groups after enrollment.

Creative Drama and Effective Communication for 7-17 year olds:
Classes for age groups of 7 - 17 years. The essence of effective communication, whether it is applied in the traditional fields of theatre or in the classroom, the boardroom, the doctor's surgery, parliament or the market place, is the ability to 'tell the story' clearly and truthfully. All of these classes lead to the development of the skills necessary to undertake that task.
All students work in groups to prepare material which is appropriate to their age, experience and learning needs. All work leads to performances in the school's acting studio at the end of each term. Students are also offered the opportunity to study for and sit examinations from a number of boards including Guildhall, Trinity and RADA.
