FOUNDATION ACTING (Full Time)
Validated by Mountview

One year (full-time)

Mountview’s full-time Foundation in Acting delivers a balance of preparing for future drama school auditions and preparing for a life-long career. It is not about how to deliver a two-minute monologue – it is about unlocking creative impulse and developing performance strength.

The course focuses on three key areas of artistic development: creativity, technique and readiness. It is the equal focus on these three pillars that allows students to find and develop their own artistic identity and process.

Our Foundation in Acting is led by the same full-time training team as our BA (Hons) course and is designed to prepare students to become self-led creative artists as well as to develop the skills needed to embark on further vocational acting training.

There are 16 places available each year. Students receive between 32 – 35 hours of contact teaching each week over two 15-week terms.
