Applications extended

Applications for the Sound course will remain open until Tuesday, 28 January 2020.

WAAPA’s Sound program covers a broad range of areas within the field. Students develop their skills in the areas of sound production for theatre, concerts, music recording, film/tv and radio with their involvement in WAAPA performances, and also via theoretical and practical information given during classes. WAAPA Sound graduates may find themselves mixing musical acts, creating sound designs for theatre, recording in sound studios, producing radio shows and adverts, recording dialogue on film sets and setting up sound installations for museums amongst many more opportunities. WAAPA’s Sound program offers training in vocational (VET) and degree courses which allows students to increase their academic qualifications with further study. The initial entry Diploma year articulates into a second year of study to achieve an Advanced Diploma. This in turn articulates into a Bachelor of Performing Arts that can be attained in three semesters. View our Sound brochure.
