The programme is organised in a modular structure, with various modes of assessment. It is through performance that the ability to integrate and apply acting, voice, movement and singing skills is measured. The holistic nature of acting means that this form of assessment is most appropriate, and so performance assessment is embedded throughout the programme modules at every level of training.
In the 1st year, the curriculum focuses on the attainment of technical skills, such as acting, voice, movement and singing. Rehearsals for projects allow students to put the techniques they have learnt into practice. This very technical 1st year underpins the 2nd year, where more time is given over to rehearsals and project work. In the 3rd year, technical classes take place on Mondays only, with the rest of the week given over to rehearsals for public performances with outside professional directors. All productions, live and recorded, receive voice, movement and singing input as required. In addition, students are given career advice and support through the Professional Preparation module.
