About this course

You will undertake three years of intensive training and performing, graduating as an employable film and stage actor. The course is exhilarating, demanding and life changing, and is a full-time commitment physically, mentally and emotionally. You will begin from the first year with studio work focusing on extensive training in movement, voice, speech production, physical expressivity, character, acting methodologies and script analysis, as well as an understanding of film and TV industries. As your course progresses you will continue to refine your skills through studio and locations modules, performing regularly in film shoots and studio productions supported by a design and stage management team. In your final year you present your film and stage work, ActingWorks, to Australia’s leading agents and casting directors.

I have been recalled

If you've been successful, you'll also be given the time and date of your recall audition.

Prepare for your recall with the acting recall audition preparation document (PDF file, 129.2 KB).

Spaces in recall auditions are very limited, so we can only reschedule your recall audition under extenuating circumstances. Contact us by emailing ci@qut.edu.au or calling 3138 8114 as soon as possible. If you don't attend your final recall, you won't be considered for a place in the course.

I haven't been recalled

If you have not progressed to the final recall, we won't be able to offer you a place in this course. You might want to review your QTAC preferences online.

Audition feedback

Due to the large number of applications received, the selection panel is unable to provide feedback to applicants.

When do I find out my audition outcome? QTAC applications

Before the November offer round, we will update the preference information within your QTAC application to reflect your audition outcome. Make sure you have QUT as your first preference. You'll be able to check this via QTAC’s application services.

What information will I see on QTAC?

Within your preferences tab you will see one of the following statuses under the satisfied column:

  • Met: You have met the minimum entry requirements to be considered for a place in this course
  • Not met: You have not met the minimum entry requirements to be considered for a place in this course. You may want to review your QTAC course preferences.

Meeting the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee a QTAC offer for this course, as there are usually more eligible applicants than places available in the program. Most offers will be made in the November offer round. Further offers may be made in later offer rounds.

Intrafaculty change applications

Admissions will notify you of your outcome by email, sent to your QUT student email address from December.

Change of major or minor applications

The Creative Industries Faculty will notify you of your outcome by email, sent to your QUT student email address from late November.

I need more information

Contact the Creative Industries Faculty for more information on our audition process. You can get in touch by emailing ci@qut.edu.au or calling 3138 8114.
