Our One Year Diploma Acting Programmes
In our intensive, nine month, fully english-speaking, Professional Diploma Acting Programme and for our International Foundational Acting Programme, we offer access to essential, cutting-edge acting techniques throughout the one year programme, taught by acting mentors with world-class teaching backgrounds.
*Note: this program is designed to allow training actors to also consider some job/employment activity, and/or university study. Classes for this program meet two (occasionally three times) a week during evenings, and/or during weekend hours
*Also note, significantly, our program operates on a “pay as you go” basis. All Diploma students pay only for the classes they are signed on for in a given 7 to 8 week term. Pay as you go.
One-year Diploma Acting Programme
The essential act techniques offered throughout the year: Meisner Technique, Strasberg Method, Comedy Workshop with Improvisation, Lecoq Method, Acting for the Camera, Cultivating Your Actor’s Voice, and The Foundations of Acting with Introduction to Camera technique.

You will be in class at least 3 sessions per week. Actors must be prepared to rehearse with partners for performance projects outside of class hours.
*The ability to collaborate and work well within a unit is absolutely key. Mulholland provides the program, the class venues, class materials, and the International mentors with world class teach backgrounds.
