ACA Co-Delivery Partner
ACA is very proud of its more than three decades of superb service to arts education and is a national and international destination for creative development.


The Bachelor of Performing Arts (Stage and Screen) is accredited by Torrens University Australia and delivered in partnership with Actors Centre Australia (ACA).

Over three years, participants in the Bachelor of Arts (Stage and Screen) experience a high-powered and practical acting program designed for high achievers. The degree program embraces an individual’s gifts and honours their personal and artistic journey throughout their training. Participants study in an adult environment — a place of mutual collaboration, respect and support, while the paradigm for learning is: high challenge matched with high support produces high performance.

The degree is taught in person over three years at ACA’s Sydney Campus in Leichhardt and only 26 places are available in each year. Provided a place is available, you may join the course at the beginning of the second year, as long as you have completed the equivalent of our first-year credits.

Upon completion, you will be equipped with above-industry standards and skills, giving you the potential to progress into a professional career in the global stage and screen industries.

The degree program is structured in a way that means two days each week are spent off campus to allow time for reflection and digestion, for quality research and preparation, and to work and live. This exciting partnership between Torrens University Australia and ACA also means that eligible participants enrolled in the degree can apply for financial assistance through the FEE-HELP loan scheme.*
