Courses & Admissions
How to get into WAAPA
The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts offers a wide range of courses from the Vocational Education and Training (VET) Certificates and Advanced Diplomas funded by the Western Australian Department of Education and Training through to higher education Bachelor, Masters and Doctoral degrees.
Admission to these courses is by audition and/or interview. Admission to the Bachelor programs at WAAPA also requires completion of entrance requirements for Edith Cowan University. Students who do not meet University admission requirements should discuss their options with staff at WAAPA.
Applications to WAAPA courses open in July to September the year prior to course commencement. Application kits are updated each July and we accept applications from July. We leave information packs for the previous year on the WAAPA website to give potential applicants an idea of the audition process.
