Creative experiences ignite the imagination and pave the way for many bright futures. At Actors College of Theatre and Television (ACTT) we have a proud history of 20 years in preparing and inspiring people to pursue creative and successful lives. We offer an extensive program of courses, specialist workshops and master classes delivered by some of Australia’s leading performing arts tutors. We’re open to the use of diverse approaches to actor, director and technician training.
Our accredited courses ensure the quality assurance standards you expect and provide the industry recognised qualifications you need. All training programs are designed to enable graduates to develop autonomy in their individual process, skills in their chosen field and commitment to excellence that will fuel and drive their passion. As a smaller and more intimate institution we can offer individual mentoring and support to ensure that your training is successful and that your unique abilities are nurtured and developed.
We have considerable experience in providing excellent qualifications for international students and currently have overseas students from several countries studying a range of courses. Many of the courses are open to international students who contribute to a stimulating learning environment.
Industry-recognised accredited courses
Accredited courses assure the quality standards you expect and provide the industry recognised qualifications you need. Courses start at Certificate III level through to Advanced Diploma and a degree pathway exists for acting graduates. All programs are exclusively designed to support and challenge each student to create a successful career in acting or as music theatre performers, stage managers or theatre technicians.
ACTT helps you develop the confidence and tools to create your own work and be in control of your career. ACTT’s industry networks, student and tutor partnerships and strong alumni support opens up opportunities that others can only dream of. More
Professional stage and screen acting
In 2004 John O’Hare joined us as Head of Acting and has worked to create The ACTT System which inspires students with energy, dynamism, increasing confidence and the bedrock of repeatable quality that they can draw upon again and again, when under pressure or in different circumstances.
Recognition of The ACTT System is building as ACTT’s reputation for graduates who deliver impacting performances on both stage and screen has been widely endorsed by agents, directors and producers in Australia and internationally. As a result The ACTT System is now integrated into all aspects of ACTT’s acting courses. ACTT’s acting courses include major screen acting training components, and Advanced Diploma students produce a showreel that has been acknowledged for years as one of the best in Australia.
Acting for beginners
For many years ACTT has been running our popular Acting Essentials course. This is a carefully constructed course that uses improvisation techniques and actor training methods to allow participants to relax, feel comfortable and build confidence in their ability to perform and be creative. It’s a great experience and very popular with people of all ages and backgrounds. A pathway of short courses is available up to advanced level and we also run short courses in Screen Acting, as well as specialised workshops and masterclasses. More
ACTT tutors are also experts in their fields and are professional practitioners. At ACTT this is matched with a cutting-edge curriculum to give every student the edge they need. More
Open to international students
One of ACTT’s great benefits is our Sydney location. Overseas students are eligible to apply for an international student visa, stay in Australia for more than three months and work up to 20 hours a week. Overseas students must have an IELTS score of 6 or higher in English. More
Scholarships and Financial Assistance
We understand that tuition costs can be a primary factor in your decision to study with us. That is why we’ve introduced the ACTT Acting Scholarship which offers up to 3 years of acting training to the successful student to make an ACTT education more affordable. Grants, loans and outside scholarships may be used toward an ACTT education and all ACTTs full time courses are approved by Centrelink for Austudy/ Abstudy or Youth Allowance. Visit our website to download and send in a scholarship application. More
The Advanced Diploma of Arts in Stage & Screen Acting is available to Domestic Students through the VET FEE-HELP Program. VET FEE-HELP is a loan scheme for the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector that is part of the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP). VET FEE-HELP assists eligible students undertaking certain VET courses of study (diploma, advanced diploma, graduate certificate and graduate diploma courses). The scheme allows students to borrow funds up to their FEE-HELP limit to help pay for all or part of their tuition fees. More Info
