Acting - Bachelor

The Bachelor’s Programme in Acting educates independent and artistically conscious actors for professional activities in theatre, film, television, radio and more. Here is a description of the training for those wanting to become an actor. Main language of instruction is Swedish.

The acting profession is about getting to the core of how other people think, feel and act in specific circumstances, and then consciously portraying those human characteristics. Being able to communicate your inner imagination visually to an audience. It is an intellectual process as well as intuitive, physical and emotional.

Our bachelor degree programmes are open for admissions every two years.

The Bachelor’s Programme in Acting

Since actors are their own instruments, they are constantly working on developing their voices and bodies. During training, you develop your artistic skills by exploring different approaches and try different kinds of portrayals.

The goal is to educate independent and artistically conscious actors for professional activities in theatre, film, television, radio and more. After the course, you will have achieved a deeper knowledge of your expression. You will have the ability to make conscious choices in your portrayals, and have a theoretical foundation, both in the present and historically. You will have knowledge of the other professional functions in the theatre, film, radio and television, especially other directors who are trained on the same course.

The first and second year is devoted to discovering, exploring and developing your skills and abilities. The third year is devoted to the meeting with the audience and the students are doing full-scale productions, both individually and in an ensemble.

  • Application and tuition fees

    If you are a Swedish citizen or a citizen of another EU or EEA country you are not required to pay application or tuition fees. Some other groups are also exempt from the requirement to pay application and study fees.

    A few years ago Sweden introduced application and tuition fees for higher education. The level of the study fees depends on which course/programme they are for, and the level is set in order to cover the actual costs of the course/programme in question.

    If you are required to pay an application fee, we need to have received your payment by the last date for applications. The application fee is SEK 900. If you are required to pay the application fee and we have not received your payment by the last date for applications, we will not process your application.
