Our Part-Time Foundation course in Musical Theatre takes place over two intensive terms preparing you for drama school auditions. This 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.

“I’m thrilled … I’m starting at GSA on the Musical Theatre BA (Hons) course in September! I just wanted to thank all of the brilliant teachers at ArtsEd for all the help and guidance I received while on the Part-Time Foundation course.”Tom Griffiths
“I would 100% recommend part-time training for anyone considering it. After unsuccessful auditions for BA courses at drama school for two years in a row, I searched for alternatives and came across the Part-Time Foundation course at ArtsEd. It was far more economically viable than a full time course and I felt that I got all the training necessary for me to take the next step into full time training. I am now studying BA Actor Musicianship at Rose Bruford and couldn’t be happier. I’m extremely grateful that I was given the opportunity to attend this course, and fear that had I not, I would still be floundering at auditions with very little idea of what I was doing wrong.”Callum King
“Since the Part-Time Foundation course, I’ve been very lucky to be offered a place at London College of Music doing their three-year Musical Theatre course!”Emily Guest
