Level 3 Extended Diploma in Acting
Why did you choose your course at NKC?
I chose this course because the Miskin Theatre has a great reputation for offering first class training.
What do you enjoy most about your course?
Training is fantastic, you are part of a working production company. Being part of the Miskin allows the actors training here to work on full-scale shows that are performed to public audiences.
What are the tutors/teaching like?
The directors here have such a passion for performing arts and invest so much time and energy into helping all of us develop into professional performers.
What experiences have the college helped you gain/what have you achieved?
During my time here, I have had so many opportunities to play different roles in a diverse range of productions, including a lead role in the Christmas production Return to Oz which had a two week run. This experience greatly helped me to enhance my professional skills and looks great in my portfolio of experience.
I was also involved in the Kent Further Education awards recently, which is a competition between Kent Colleges. NKC won in all categories including dance, acting and music. Winning all the categories made me really proud of being part of the courses offered here at NKC and made me realise how lucky we all are to receive such high standard training; all our hard work is clearly paying off!
What would you like to do in the future?
There are great opportunities to advance following completion of the course, including drama school and university. My Training has enabled me to secure a place at a respected drama school, Rose Bruford doing BA honours in acting musicianship.
Would you recommend the college?
I would fully recommend the college and the course to anyone with a love of performing, because you get to do what you love everyday.
