At Regent's you’ll have the freedom to explore your interests in a supportive and nurturing environment with interactive classes, regular one-to-one contact with tutors, specialist facilities, industry opportunities and tailored careers advice – ensuring you develop the skills, experience and confidence you need to succeed.
In year one you'll explore your critical understanding and embodiment of techniques, in year two you'll acquire competency and critical awareness of new fields such as screen acting and, in your final year, you'll consolidate your learning as you direct your energy towards future aspirations.
The majority of work you do will be collaborative – a vital part of learning to be an actor, that'll greatly enhance your own work.
Contact hours: Years 1 and 2: 18 hours per week. Year 3: 12-18 hours per week.
You'll be taught by professional film and theatre actors, directors, writers and production specialists who continue to work in this sector alongside teaching. Their knowledge and experience ensure your classes are shaped by the most current industry practices.
Our academics have a wealth of experience – from winning BAFTA nominations to working on award-winning documentaries, screening work at the Superbowl, developing feature films in Hollywood and having their own BFI retrospectives to showcase their career highlights.
You'll also be allocated a personal tutor, who'll meet you on a one-to-one basis at various stages throughout the year to provide you with guidance and advice to support your personal and professional development.
Plus, you'll benefit from regular guest speakers – from Hollywood actors to award-winning directors and producers. Past speakers have included directors Francis Anan and Ed Lovelace; writer and producer Vincent Ngo; cinematographer Trevor Forrest; editor Matyas Fekete and casting directors Simone Pereira Hind and Ben Cogan.
Throughout the course, you'll be expected to undertake extra reading, personal research and reflection, as well as preparing work for workshops and working collaboratively with students in preparation for assessment.
Method of assessment
Your skills and knowledge will be assessed via presentations, group work, screenings, public performances and mock auditions, as well as reflective essays, personal research and critical analyses of aspects of the film, television and theatre industries.
