What our students say...

“I always wanted to train to be an actor. In Hong Kong, I trained to be a dancer and received singing training along the way. I did a lot of work with the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation, working on musicals and performing in productions, which helped me gain valuable acting and performing experience.

"By taking an MA Acting course at Birmingham School of Acting (BSA), it completed my training and skill set as a musical theatre actor. I happened to know a few BSA tutors, so I was aware of the high-quality teaching that would be provided. The facilities at BSA are fantastic, with clean and spacious studios. The teaching was just what I needed, and the skills they provide for acting are amazing and very extensive.”

What our students say...

“I wanted to study a media course that offered a range of production modules as well as theory modules. I researched universities not only in the United Kingdom but also throughout Europe.

"Birmingham City University offered a good range of production modules whereas a lot of other courses only offered theory courses or just one production module such as television. While on the course I loved my production modules.

"Seeing the results from my own photography project or from a group television project was fun and rewarding and gave me something solid to show to potential employers and clients. The MA Freelance Photography course focuses more on the entrepreneurial aspects of photography and is designed to prepare you for the real world.

"The MA course focuses on branding, marketing, your style of work, target market and selling yourself. I’m currently working in Hong Kong and freelancing here, working with a range of local designers, magazines and models. I’ve been published in Hong Kong Tatler, Hong Kong Prestige magazine and have also did a shoot for Fashion One TV in Japan.”
