The Acting Program is a one year long international program held in English. During the program, you will perform on stage as well as in front of the camera. Our method is based on working together with other students at the school on film projects. You will learn how to present yourself in casting, how to work with other disciplines for stage and film, and you will get basic knowledge on how a theatre and a film set works.
To apply and become admitted to the Acting Program, you need to have a highschool certificate/diploma, or such. If you don’t have this, depending on your other experiences, we can make an exception. Please write to us and let us know your situation. You need to speak, read and write English.
The Acting Program is an intensive two semester course. During two semesters you study
- How to analyze text.
- How to prepare as an actor.
- How to build a character for theatre, film and voice acting.
- How to work with physical acting.

The school year is divided in autumn- and spring terms, with a Christmas break for about 2 weeks, and summer holiday of about 2 months (June-August). Classes are usually scheduled Monday-Friday from 9 am to 4 pm, with a few exceptions as certain elements, such as film shootings, can take place on evenings and weekends.
