Students will learn the techniques, strategies and processes of contemporary theatre-making and performance in a range of contexts, and will be able to specialise in either Acting or Theatre. Entry into the Acting major is based on a combination of both academic results and audition scores. Students will be required to audition to demonstrate talent and potential to benefit from the course.

Standard entry requirements
DOMESTIC STUDENTS - ATAR-BASED ADMISSION OPTIONS Guaranteed entry selection ranks Entry to this course can be gained with: Minimum ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) International Baccalaureate (IB) Interstate equivalent (such as the Victorian ENTER or Queensland OP) Results in an overseas qualification deemed equivalent to Australian year 12. The minimum score for guaranteed entry (or for consideration if this course has limited places) is an ATAR-Selection Rank of 70 or an IB of 26. This includes the effect of adjustment factors. Adjustment factors, such as the subjects you are studying, the area in which you live or equity and access schemes, are taken into consideration and these will be combined with your ATAR to adjust your selection rank and make it higher than your ATAR. These adjustments used to be called bonus points. An audition process will be required for students wishing to enrol in the Acting major.
