At APAC we balance Academic Rigour with Professional Relevance.  The BSS is a ‘practice-led’ degree.  This means that, while academic and theoretical components are central to the learning journey to inform and underpin the practical, skills-based classes, the focus is developing performance and technical skills while developing a broader understanding of the cultural and professional context around those performance skills.

At APAC our priority is to graduate multi-skilled, multi-disciplinary, knowledgeable, adaptable, employable professionals.

At APAC we equip you with the skills to maximise your employability as a professional artist – and also to create, develop, and navigate your own professional arts career.

The application process involves an interview with the relevant course coordinator.  Students are encouraged to submit a self-tape for the Acting and Song & Dance streams.
