Studying acting at WAAPA is an inspiring and all-consuming experience. This degree produces graduates who are prepared for a career in a wide variety of media, including theatre, television, film and radio, both in Australia and internationally. The course has evolved as an extensive conservatoire training program guided by a philosophy of discovery, application and embodiment, delivered at all times in a diverse and inclusive environment. The core innovation of the program is to unite rigorous skills-based actor training with local, national and international guest directors and organisations, to simulate real-life industry programs and productions. The combination of all these factors means that students graduate with more than just acting skills; they are self-determined, autonomous strategists who are resilient and elite performers at the top of their game.
