Students will gain highly specialised knowledge in a range of professional contexts and develop advanced expertise as a voice coach, teacher or performer. The course has been developed with the support of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

As an accredited Drama UK School, graduates have gone on to fulfil very exciting careers. Working professionally at prestigious organisations such as the RSC, The Royal Court, the Minack, The Cambridge Theatre, the Mountview Theatre Academy and ALRA.

You will explore in-depth the theory and practice of working with the voice. During your studies you will consider innovations in practice, and initiate research. You will be taught philosophical, ethical and aesthetic principles related to voice practice.
