One Year Foundation Acting Course

Foundation Acting Course
(HNC Acting and Performance)

Is this you?

You didn’t make it into drama school this year, or you know you’re not ready yet. 

OR perhaps you know that you want to act, but you don't have enough experience yet.

This is the course for you. 

You’re hard working, committed, and determined to become an actor. You’re creative and sensitive, you feel you would blossom in a professional training environment.

This is the course for you.

You don’t want to waste a year at a local college, you know they can’t offer you the intensive professional coaching, but London-based foundation courses are short, expensive and the cost of living is ridiculous - who can blame you for wanting to avoid that?

This is the course for you. 

But a private 1-Year Foundation HNC Acting and Performance course? You probably can't afford that right?


If you're a Scottish or EU (with Scottish residency) student, you can afford to do this course.

Read on, we'll explain how. 

We have designed a unique Foundation Acting

course incorporating a

HNC Acting and Performance. 

It naturally includes: Acting Technique, Voice, Movement and Production - like any good acting course would. 


  • Coaching by Industry Professionals

  • More Public Performances than any other HNC in Scotland. 

  • 80% more contact time than a traditional HNC course

  • Intensive Acting for Camera 

  • Personal Audition Coaching

  • Mock Auditions with Industry Professionals

  • SMALL classes (no more than 12)

PLUS: Each graduate will also have the opportunity to audition for entry into our Professional 2-Year HND Acting and Performance 

We know you can do a HNC Acting and Performance for free at a local college.

If you're determined to become a professional actor, if you're creative person, a problem solver, with a growth mindset and the grit to succeed in this business, you should audition for one of our 12 places. Unfortunately to maintain the very highest quality, we limit this opportunity to only those with the best potential.

Fees and Funding

The fees for this incomparable HND in Acting and Performance are £5000 per year,

plus £250 administrative charge. 

And this is how you can afford to do this incredible course.

For eligible Scottish students (and EU citizens who are resident in Scotland), you can have £1205 of your fees paid for by the Scottish Government through SAAS. You can pay the remainder through your Student Loan. Easy!

Remember, at present, if you are earning less than £25,000 a year after graduation, you will pay NOTHING back at all. 

So what's stopping you from auditioning for us?
