About the course

Together with the MA/MFA Voice Studies and the MA/MFA Movement: Directing and Teaching courses, Actor Training and Coaching is one of Central’s postgraduate degrees that exposes you to high-level training practice.

The course does not train actors, but develops a practical understanding of what it is to act, enabling you to work as an actor trainer, coach, theatre practitioner and a director of actors.

Create approaches through research and practice in training methodologies and through specialist teaching
Learn pedagogical tools for coaching and teaching actors
Benefit from wide-reaching placement opportunities.


In the MA and the MFA first year, there is the opportunity for you to undertake a teaching/assistant directing/coaching placement, as well as placements to engage with different acting and production contexts with the duration ranging from eight hours to three months.

Placements are a vital part of the course and will enable you to develop experience and hone skills as a pedagogue/practitioner. If you are pursuing the part-time pathway, you will undertake placements in the second year of your course.

The MFA second year widens your opportunity to practise knowledge within a professional context. You will be expected to undertake one or two workplace attachments, as well as participate in tutorials and occasional seminars throughout the year as part of an ongoing process of pedagogical reflection and engagement leading to the submission of the final assessment. An MFA top-up year for those of you with an existing MA in this subject is also available.


Assessment during the first three terms of both courses is through written work, presentation and teaching practice. In the MA fourth term (part-time second year) you will work towards a final dissertation or portfolio. In the MFA second year, assessment is by means of an extended dissertation or portfolio (inclusive of case studies, reflective documentation and plans of work) manifesting responses to attachment/s and practice.
