This Acting programme is delivered within the Junior Conservatoire of Drama and is designed specifically for young people who aspire to study acting at further or higher education level. This is an intensive training programme that gives you the opportunity to explore your creativity, grow in confidence as a performer, establish a strong voice and movement skills and learn more about the acting craft and what it takes to be a professional actor.

You will benefit from learning within a conservatoire environment and have the opportunity to take part in Bridge Week, an interdisciplinary celebration where students from across the Junior Conservatoire come together to devise and perform new work within one of the Royal Conservatoire’s professional venues. As the national conservatoire of Scotland, we have strong partnerships with the professional industry and this has previously seen Junior Conservatoire Acting students perform at the Citizens Theatre and receive masterclasses with industry experts.

By studying on this Juniors Acting programme, you will:

  • learn from expert staff from the Royal Conservatoire
  • work with students from other disciplines, including the Junior Conservatoire Production and Film programmes
  • develop and build on the foundation skills of acting including voice and movement
  • learn character and script analysis and how to develop these for stage
  • take part in performing opportunities including end of term sharings and Bridge Week

Entry to the programme is by audition only and we accept a small number of students each year into the programme to allow us to focus our teaching on each individual’s development.

The programme runs from September to June each year, and there are three levels of study available depending on your ability and experience. Many students join us at level 1 and progress through the level to graduate from the Junior Conservatoire, having completed the full three years of study.
