Building your network with like-minded people and meeting others that work in the acting industry is very important. At APAC we enable you to attend industry events and talks.
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 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.
