WAAPA's Bachelor of Arts (Acting) degree is a three-year rigorous conservatoire program that will open the mind and ignite the imagination. Centred on the development of the self-determined contemporary actor, we graduate actors who are confident, resilient, and prepared for a career in theatre, television, and film both nationally and internationally. The program offers a full-time, studio-based, learning environment, where students are encouraged to develop holistically through the integrated practice of acting, voice and movement in theatre and screen. Guided by a philosophy of discovery, application, and embodiment, the program is delivered in an inclusive and diverse environment that celebrates the unique perspective of each student. In this rigorous skills-based actor training, local, national, and international visiting artists work with staff to simulate real-life industry programs and productions. The Bachelor of Arts (Acting) has an international reputation for excellence evidenced by the success of its graduates for over 40 years.
