Based on the names, I would assume that Drama is more focused on every aspect of Drama (acting, technical, writing) whereas Acting will be purely focused on acting and developing those skills. Check both of the courses on the Uni website and read through it thoroughly so you can understand the difference.

As above, Drama courses may be more wide ranging. Additionally, my understanding is even where they are primarily focused on the "expressive arts" aspect, a "Drama" course may well focus more on dramatic theatre work, whereas an Acting course seems more likely to include options in e.g. screen acting, musical theatre and so on. However there is a pretty large intersection between them and it seems to vary considerably; I'd suggest checking the individual course contents/structures and seeing which is most appropriate to your goals.

If you want to become an actor then you will increase your chances by going to a specialist drama school such as Rada or Lamda rather than take a Drama degree.
