The Acting (Stage and Screen) (Hons) programme from Coventry University will develop and enhance your personal, professional and vocational skills. It fosters creativity, critical reflection and an understanding of the processes and performances of diverse acting practices in their global, historical, and contemporary socio-political contexts, and across live, recorded, and digital platforms. This is a collaborative, creative and industry-facing course in which you have the opportunity to develop your skills in presentation and critically-creative academic enquiry. These skills are essential for a range of careers in the creative industries and beyond. You will work closely with other students in media and performing arts, and in the faculty, developing a portfolio of work across a range of media that will enhance their prospects for employability upon graduation.

You will apply key skills in voice, movement and character development to work on stage and on screen. You will also have the opportunity to engage with acting in, for example, drama and documentary film production, television, radio, corporate video and video art, live theatre, and immersive technologies such as augmented and virtual reality. The course builds upon extensive faculty expertise in the research and practice of immersive performance and motion capture, interactive media arts, and installation. The course is at the cutting edge of technological innovation in performer training with the Immersive in Telepresence project conducted in conjunction with Tampere University in Finland, having been the recipient of several international awards.


There is a strong emphasis within the course on your future career path, aimed not only to help you to explore what your chosen career path might be, but also to help build a professional level of business skills and knowledge.

The ‘Business Matters’ module in particular is designed to encourage you to develop an appreciation of the nature of professionalism in the context of the performing arts industry and to recognise the relationship between professional arts practice, critical reflection and personal planning. You will have the opportunity to consider career structures relevant for your field, including companies, free-lance, small businesses and sole trader, and the commercial structures within which you may eventually work. We will also look at the possible market places for different skills and creations, which includes areas such as self-promotion, marketing and publicity.

The university's Talent Team is on hand to offer tailored career and enterprise advice to support if you wish to gain employment or take advantage of professional practice opportunities within course specific industries. Our dedicated Enterprise Officers also offer valuable assistance on how to begin as a freelancer/entrepreneur.

On successful graduation, there are many options you could possibly pursue including careers in teaching following further training, socially engaged and community arts organisations and theatre in education contexts.
