Career Support

Life after graduation can be a daunting prospect. That's why we offer practical support and professional opportunities long after your course is over.

You will soon start to understand the ins and outs of casting and will receive detailed guidance on your acting CV, cover letters and professional photographs. You will be equipped with all the knowledge you need to launch your professional career – and, more importantly, to sustain that career.
