The Bachelor of Fine Arts (Acting) provides a studio-based learning environment where students are encouraged to develop holistically as an actor. The program focuses on the rigorous preparation of actors working across all areas of the profession for stage and screen (including animation and gaming) offering units of requisite size and scale to accommodate the demands of intensive project based learning outcomes, exposing students to current infrastructural, cultural and methodological practices in the profession. It offers students opportunity to engage in National and International engagement projects, building on existing expertise and approaches to industry readiness for the autonomous, ensemble and company actor.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts (Acting) enables graduates to enter the profession with effective clarity, preparedness and skills. The structure of the course allows intensive skills training and practice to take place alongside rehearsal processes and a wide variety of performance situations.

Collaborative practice is regarded as an important element of contemporary theatre and is therefore integral to our training. Our graduates work at all levels of the theatre, film and television industries, and are renowned for their capacity to work creatively and collaboratively, in both traditional and ground- breaking performance contexts. Students establish careers in professional theatre, community arts and education, film, television, radio, new media and education.
