This college is great for adult studies and allowed the student to work during the day to supplement the fees.

ACT has provided tutors with a great amount of experience and knowledge that they have imparted to their students. The tutors have really helped me grow as an actor.

I studied at Act Brighton from September 2014 to July 2016 and I have to say that I was trained by the best. Itís given me the skills, confidence and professionalism to move into a full time acting career. Janette, Dan and the team gave us all of the tools including voice, physicality, musical theatre, acting for television. They also really cared about our well-being and as a mature student changing careers this was essential. As a result of studying at ACT I now have an agent and am getting roles and auditions on stage and in front of the camera. I would whole heartedly recommend ACT to anyone wanting to kickstart a career in acting.

Completing my education at The Academy of Creative Training has been the most rewarding experience. The quality of the teaching is extremely high and the experience I gained in both stage and TV was invaluable in taking my first steps towards an acting career.

I am blessed to have had the amazing opportunity to study at ACT. They have given me the required skills & confidence to go out into the big wide, wonderful, world acting. The level of teaching coupled with the continued support of all the teachers and ex ACT Graduates has been incredible.

The Academy of Creative Training is fantastic because the classes are on evenings and weekends and so allow you to work full-time. The standard of teaching is excellent - most of the time the teachers are professionals working in the industry themselves, so you feel that you are getting the most relevant and up-to-date information. If you are driven and are serious about being an actor, I highly recommend this course.

Having attended The Academy of Creative Training from September,2009 to July,2011 I found the course to be highly rigorous and enjoyable. A high emphasis was placed on gaining practical experience and preparing for the demands of the acting industry. I have no hesitation in saying that I came out of The Academy as a much improved actor.

I would recommend ACT to anyone who was interested in a career in Acting. You can get a 'taster' of what to expect on the Two week workshop, which is a great way to get to know the school and the course. I found the Two year Acting diploma challenging, exhausting and truely rewarding. The evening classes mean that you can support yourself while you train and the fees are affordable. Be warned though this course will take over your life! But having just signed the contract for my first professional job, it's well worth it!

2010, Post Graduate Acting

A 10 week course covering a variety of acting styles to develop existing acting skills.

A fantastic drama school that offered a wide range of acting, voice and movement techniques. The small classes ensured each student was fully supported and the warm atmosphere created a relaxed and safe environment to explore and develop.

ACT is a great drama school. Under the wing of the tutors I grew as an actor and in confidence. It was like a big family and I feel lucky that I had the chance to be a part of this school. Just go and take part in the 2 week workshop and see for yourself. Thanks ACT for all you've given me.

The Academy of Creative Training being the only drama School in the south coast to offer professional actors training is unique and special to me in many ways. the college gives opportunity to any walk of life, with the only age restriction being you must be over 18 their doors are open to any age group, within my year we ranged from the youngest at 18 to the eldest in their 60's with many in-between. the Tutors are all working actors, directors and writers offering their experience and skills, to me it felt less like a tutor to pupil experience than an apprenticeship. i don't know of any other college that offers a more in-depth and personal tutorage into the practical workings of the performance industry. The courses are held during the evening in order to allow the pupils to continue work and family life, this also enables students to work off their fee's to the college so they may start their carers in the acting world without the burden of student debt on their heads. i would say my time at the Academy of Creative Training was the most enjoyable time of my life, I gained everything I needed to start and survive in this industry.

2008, 1 Year Foundation

This course was perfect for me at the time as it eased me into the idea of full time actor training. It gave me the confidence and grounding that I needed to then go on to their 2 year Diploma in speech and drama. The level of teaching is outstanding and I don't regret and minute or penny of it!

Very good course taught by experienced professionals currently working in the industry. Secured an agent following graduation. It was a good use of time and funds.

This was an excellent course for those seeking a career change, similar in intent to The Poor School . I was 34 when I started the course and have not stopped working since graduation in 07. Tutors are all working actors which means the classes are lively and relevant.

The course at A.C.T was fantastic - an incredibly high standard of training from tutors that are currently working in the industry and can also be found teaching at top London drama schools, I can't praise the tutors and directors highly enough. I thoroughly enjoyed my years of drama school at A.C.T and felt fully prepared after graduating. The course runs in the evenings which works around people who are working during the day, by the second year the classes intensify which really helps give you a kick start into the industry (and, in my case, kick start to quit my job and find more flexible work). The course is aimed at all ages, which makes for a fun, interesting and diverse mix of people from all walks of life.

My time at ACT was brilliant - the best thing I've ever done. The standard of teaching was excellent - we got the same teachers in Brighton who also teach in the larger London schools. The 2 week workshop is excellent value for money, allowing students to get to have a taster of what the diploma is like, and also allows the school to get a comprehensive feel for how the students work individually and in an ensemble. It has recently been accredited with Trinity Guildhall status for it's diploma course, which runs in the evenings to make it accessible to mature students who work full time. It has a great family feel, I am still in touch with many of the teachers five years on not least because they are good at remembering you for roles in their productions! very supportive.

A very good and well rounded course for those taking the first steps into training in professional acting. In just one year they covered a lot of ground in many aspects of acting and other related performing arts.

Excellent all round 2 year actors training, manageable fees, allowed me to work at the same time; fellow students with a rich variety of ages & life experience because of this. I always feel just as trained & prepared as my contemporaries who have often completed 3 year full time courses at london schools.
