Student Profile(s)

Enyi Okoronkwo, Graduated 2014, credits include Wonderland at the National Theatre and Junkyard, a new musical at Bristol Old Vic.

I was aware that it would be a jump coming from the BA (Hons) Drama at Queen Mary to the MA Acting at Central, but throughout I have found that the intensity of this course – being taught by industry professionals, and being given unique opportunities and constant support, including 1:1 voice and movement tutorials – has given me incomparable training.
