Acting Foundation Course

The School of Acting is delighted to build upon the successful BA and MA courses by launching a full-time Foundation Course, in association with the Lyric Hammersmith

Contact the School of Acting on 020 8987 6655 drama@artsed.co.uk

The Foundation course has been developed by Principal Chris Hocking, with the aim of developing your skills in preparation for degree level training. Students on the course will work with staff from the BA programme including Director of the School of Acting Gareth Farr and Head of Film and TV Caroline Jeffries.

Foundation students will have regular sessions at ArtsEd and access to our exceptional facilities, while around half the classes will be delivered at The Lyric Hammersmith. This is an exciting and innovative industry connection, unique to ArtsEd. The Lyric underwent a major redevelopment last year introducing state of the art facilities including a new rehearsal space, dance studio, music practice rooms, recording studio, film & TV studio, editing suite, 50 seat cinema, bar and café. Students on this course will be based in one of the brand new studios and will automatically be enrolled as a Lyric Young Company member. This programme entitles you to discounted tickets for all Lyric productions as well as access to classes and activities in addition to your Foundation course timetable.
