Our BA (Hons) Acting course at UCA Rochester is designed for the performer of the future.
It has a focus on screen performance, physical performance, presenting and skills which will enable you to share your work on social media, festivals and non-theatre based live venues.
At our Rochester campus you’ll benefit from our close ties with the performing arts industry, including nearby Maidstone TV Studios, giving you the opportunity to establish unique creative partnerships with other UCA students and work alongside those studying TV Production, Computer Animation Arts, Games Design and Theatre Design.
You’ll study a wide range of acting/performance, dance/movement and singing/vocal techniques as part of your acting degree, and discover how to get your work seen both in and out of the theatre.
As well as allowing you to develop practical performance experience in the rehearsal room, TV studio and on location, this acting course also teaches you valuable business acumen, including marketing and managing artists and event management.
You’ll also have a multitude of exciting opportunities throughout the year to perform publicly and screen your work.
The nature of this course is to provide a wide range of performance-related skills that give you the opportunity to pursue a career either in front of or behind the camera, including:
Screen or playwriting
Forming a company to create and stage your own work
Commercials (film or audio)
Voicing computer games and animations
