One Year Part-Time

Applications now open for One Year Part-Time Course

Are you searching for a challenge in your actor training? The Gaiety School of Acting’s One Year Part-Time course is the most challenging part-time training opportunity available, and is the ideal course for anyone wishing to balance their training with a job or alternate college course. Entry to the course is by audition only, and we are now accepting applications up until July 1st. As there are three levels of the programme – Performance Year, Advanced Performance Year and Performance Theatre Company – we are sure to have a course that fits your skill level.

Each level of the course takes place from October to June, two evenings a week from 7-9pm. Students can audition for any level of the course, and can complete one level in isolation, or indeed complete the three years in succession.

You can apply HERE for 2020 entry – applications close on July 1st 2020.
