Performing Arts Crash Courses in London

Want to push yourself to the limits and find out how fast you can really learn a new skill? Maybe you’ve been waiting for the opportunity to experiment with something you’ve always loved but never had the time or skills for, such as musical theatre or screen acting. Whatever, you might be surprised at what’s on offer close by. Here are some of the best crash course classes around for various performing arts.

Film & Screen Acting Classes

Screen acting is a specific discipline that requires certain knowledge and skills. Experience is a massive advantage, but there’s a lot you can gain from even a one-week course. The International School of Screen Acting is an excellent place to try one of these affordable film acting classes and drama courses in London, designed to prepare you for auditions and developing a CV in the world of TV and film acting. This crash course is suitable whether you have experience on-screen, only in theatre acting, or none whatsoever.

The Best Student Experiences in the UK

Students within the UK, and those from other places looking to study abroad, will find themselves spoilt for choice in most cases when looking for a place to study. Since we’re fortunate enough to have one of the most respected and popular education systems in Europe (and indeed the world), it’s no wonder that universities are constantly competing for the best students to join their ranks.

Luckily, the Times Higher Education (THE) provides one of the most trusted annual ranking systems for universities in the UK, which makes it easier for students to choose. In fact, “student experience” is now valued increasingly highly as a factor for students selecting a place of study, sometimes even above things like quality of teaching and the variety of courses available. The ranking by THE for student experience, as voted for by 15,000 current students for the benefit of prospective undergraduates, has now been released annually for over a decade.

In 2016, Loughborough University finds itself at the top of the chart. Staff and lecturers are considered exceptional on average, social life is rated highly and the modern campus facilities also help secure the top spot. Student lets and accommodation in Loughborough are also very affordable and easily available within very close reach of both the university and the town’s main attractions. It’s a small but well-connected place that’s ideal for student life.
