This degree offers training in acting techniques from a range of world theatre cultures.
The programme combines an active mix of theory and practice. Through a comparative study of world theatres, you will explore your creative potential in acting, voice, movement and theatre-making.
A term spent studying abroad will enable you to savour theatre and performance cultures outside the UK.
This is a three-year, full time programme.
Our tutors are experienced professionals from the London theatre community and abroad. We work closely with you to foster your individual potential and inspire a passion for world theatre.
There is a high level of practical and experience-based learning, both on and off campus. Training as a performer is demanding, and the course requires integrity, discipline and teamwork. You will find it both challenging and richly rewarding to see your skills and potential develop.
Talks and masterclasses enable you to learn from established theatre-makers. Each term, you will go on field trips and theatre visits and experience the vast range of London’s theatre scene.
Students with disabilities
Due to the practical nature of some modules, it is possible that a student with a physical difficulty may find these particularly challenging. If you think you may be affected, please contact the Disability Officer to discuss any specific needs prior to application.
You will be taught abroad for a term in your second year, at an institution other than Regent’s. We have links with more than 150 institutions in 29 countries, which gives students plenty of options when choosing where to study abroad.
The programme will equip you with the skills you need for a career as a performer. You will also gain the knowledge and expertise to undertake a wide range of other roles in theatre and the creative industries, including production, direction, film-making, casting and arts marketing.
A Regent’s education provides you with a high level of personal attention, and this begins from the moment you apply to study with us. We want to understand who you are and what your skills and interests may be – we are interested in your potential, as well as your prior achievements.

We will also assess your application for proficiency in Mathematics, asking for a GCSE in this subject at grade A-C / 9-4 (or the international equivalent).
We receive applications each year from over 170 countries and are happy to assess all international qualifications.
