WELCOME TO GSA
PART OF THE UNIVERSITY OF SURREY
As one of the UK’s leading drama schools for student satisfaction (2014 National Student Survey), our mission is to enable our students and staff to work at the forefront of their profession.
Here at the Guildford School of Acting (GSA), we offer dedicated conservatoire training with particular time and attention devoted to the progress and development of the individual artist. This is supported by a highly qualified and dedicated team of lecturers, tutors and industry experts, within a stimulating purpose-built environment on campus here at the University of Surrey.
We believe that the performing arts are essentially collaborative and that individual artists will develop their strengths most powerfully within the shared values of a core ensemble. This produces performers, practitioners and theatre technicians who can work independently and also collaboratively, who are capable of seeing the priorities of the work as a whole and of shaping and directing their talents and skills to the shared objective. This requires commitment, curiosity, courage and imagination, together with the acquisition of the solid technical skills needed to achieve the best professional results.
If you are thinking of joining this competitive, rewarding, engaging and magical profession and have the energy, commitment and determination to succeed, then we will work together to ensure that your abilities and talents are developed to the highest degree.
