    Hey guys!

    I've been attending drama classes only since the age of fifteen and am currently an AS Drama student, and I really think this is something I'd like to pursue!

    I am just writing with the thought of whether it's more valuable to attend an actual 'drama school' per se (a la LAMDA or Guildhall) rather than attend a university for a BA acting course.

    All thoughts appreciated

    If you want to become a professional actor then your chances are far greater if you go to a drama school. Yes, it is entirely possible to become an actor via a university course which blends the practical with the theoretical. You can find examples of actors who went via this route everywhere. However, drama school students spend around 35-40 hours a week learning their craft. They also have the advantage of industry liaison and showcases to help them get started.
