LEVEL OF STUDY
Prior to GSA, I was unaware of the value of formal acting training and the beneﬁts of building a solid technique. GSA helped me to collate a personalized actor’s toolbox speciﬁc to my needs as a performer and for this, I am extremely grateful. I feel that I left GSA a much more well-rounded and consistent performer than when I entered.
The thing that attracted me most to GSA was the sense of community within the School. There was a much friendlier atmosphere at the audition stage, compared to other schools, it felt like my presence at the audition was valued.
GSA isn’t just for however long your course is; it’s a community and support network you carry with you forever that supports and uplifts each and every member and I feel very lucky to be a little part of that. I think that’s very rare when it comes to conservatoire training, due to the competitive nature of the industry, but I know whenever I need it, GSA is always there.
My strongest and fondest memories are of full school internal showings of work. I loved coming together with all the teachers and students to share what we’d been doing during the term. It was very supportive and inspiring to see the talent and individuality in the School."
Take advantage of being a student for as long as possible. Companies love helping students, whether it’s giving you discounts or offering you work experience during the holidays, and it never hurts to just ask the question!
“Drama school training is like no other. You’ll learn skills you never even intended to and make friends who will always understand you like no others.”
It’s a privilege to work in a community of professionals who constantly strive to achieve the best possible results, through the common belief that what we do is special and everlasting.
The confidence I have gained in myself and my abilities throughout my time at GSA has developed so much. I feel ready to take the next step in my life and make the transition into industry.
The staff at GSA are absolutely wonderful. I have never encountered such a friendly, supportive group of teachers, and they made the whole year so enjoyable.
