How long is the diploma course?
We believe that the key to personal success is learning at your own pace. You should aim to finish the course in one year. We recommend spending one month on each module to ensure complete understanding and ability. However, you have 1000 days of access to the course so there's no rush!
Why don't I have to audition?
"Surely the only people who should be given a place at drama school are those who fail the audition." We're not trying to sell ourselves on your success. Besides, no top-flight actor got an offer from every school, in fact, not every actor even went to drama school. We teach the business AND the art to all - without condition - because if you want to succeed and you work hard then you will.
What do I need to have?
The most important things you'll need are: a good internet connection; a laptop or computer in a designated learning space free from distractions; headphones; a notebook; and a willingness to learn.
Can you really train to be an actor online?
Yes. The training provided in our online course has been tried and tested by our coaches. Our online format gives the student increased individual focus and more industry-relevant tuition. The condensed time-frame and in-depth career coaching gives you an advantage over students in conventional drama school training. The premium course delivers one-to-one live coaching which provides greater depth of knowledge and more intensive practice.
Will I be a professional actor when I graduate?
This course will give you all the skills and knowledge to make it as an actor. It's important to understand that the acting profession is unregulated and no formal qualifications are necessary. Once you graduate, it is up to you to utilise your skills and apply them in a disciplined and determined manner.
