Our Part-Time Foundation course in Acting takes place over two intensive terms preparing you for drama school auditions. The course aims to work seamlessly around your day-job taking place over three evenings a week. You will work with our expert tutors to develop crucial performance skills whilst learning about the industry and life at drama school. This course also benefits those who are looking to develop their confidence and communication skills.

“The part-time foundation course not only helped me to test the waters of acting in a comfortable environment but also gave me foundations for the skills that I’d require in voice, movement and acting. I was also introduced to Shakespeare in a way that made it easier to understand, and developed two strong contemporary and classical monologues that I still use today in auditions. To-date I’ve done nine stage productions since I left the course. I’m currently appearing as Polixenes in The Winter’s Tale at OSO Arts Centre and studying on a two-year part-time course at The Actors Door Studio.”Lanre Danmola
“The ArtsEd part-time foundation was just what I was looking for. I have acted since before I can remember and managed to get signed to an agency while I was in secondary school, but I still wanted to further my experience, learn more monologues and improve my skills. That’s exactly what this course did for me, I came out with a very strong Shakespeare monologue and a contemporary monologue that suited me down to a T, and as a result, I got a very high grade in the mock exam.
I can now trust in my new and improved abilities to smash any audition. I thoroughly recommend the part time foundation acting course to anyone interested in improving their skill set in a timetable that works easily around their everyday.”Tobias Cordes
