BA (Hons) with Integrated Foundation
The BA (Hons) Acting & World Theatre with Integrated Foundation includes a year of studies at foundation level and is designed to prepare you for direct entry on to the BA (Hons) Acting & World Theatre degree programme.
The foundation year is a highly practical programme for those who wish to gain the core physical, vocal and communication skills of the actor.
The course enables students who are interested in theatre, but have limited practical experience, to explore and develop their potential as performers.
In addition to intensive practical scene study, you will learn about the social and cultural contexts of the theatre experience, and gain practical experience of the London theatre scene.
Degree-level study offers training in acting techniques from a range of global theatre cultures, combining an active mix of theory and practice.
A term spent studying abroad will enable you to savour theatre and performance cultures outside the UK.
This is a four-year, full time programme, comprising of one year of foundation studies followed by three years of study at degree level.
You will be taught by tutors who are experienced professionals from the London theatre community.
The course draws on the wide-ranging theatrical expertise of professional theatre-makers such as actors, directors, writers and designers.
You will learn through lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials, working both individually and in groups.
In addition, master classes, guest practitioners, theatre visits, and fieldwork give you insights into theatre as both artistic practice and as a multi-faceted creative industry.
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 so, the student is advised to 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.

Studies at degree-level 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.
