Validation & Accreditation
Italia Conti’s BA (Hons) Acting course combines the advantages of specialist vocational drama training with the benefits of validation by the University of East London. Our programme specification can be found here.
We believe that conservatoire based training within higher education offers the best environment in which to prepare actors for successful careers. Our graduates leave with the artistic resources and industry knowledge necessary to succeed, with the essential reflective skills to evaluate their work and contribute to the art form itself.
