Acting and Performance

North East Scotland College


Aberdeen City Campus


This advanced level course will allow you to develop your skills with a view to working in one of the most vibrant and competitive areas of the creative industries: the performing arts. Participants on this course take part in productions; develop skills in movement, acting, voice, technical theatre and writing.

We work in close partnership with the Scottish Drama Training Network and as such, our students benefit from a range of opportunities such as visits from guest practitioners, theatre trips, specialist training and the chance to get involved with the award winning SDTN Network Ensemble, which culminates in a production at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
