LOOK... You can go to a local college and get a totally FREE HND in Acting and Performance. 


We designed our own 2-Year course to be so much more than a normal HND in Acting and Performance.

We've focused on what's going to get you employed - because that's the real goal and added a lot MORE to the course.

Fees and Funding

The fees for this incomparable HND Acting and Performance are £7750 per year for UK residents (plus a £250 Admin Fee)

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

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

Remember, at present, if you are earning less than £18,330 a year after graduation, you will pay NOTHING back at all. 

If you are from the rest of the UK, you will have to pay the fees yourself. If you wish to do so, we accept monthly payments instead of a lump sum, and we offer a small discount for the fees being paid in advance of the course starting. 

So what's stopping you from auditioning for us?
