The Lir National Academy of Dramatic Art at Trinity College Dublin. We provide three undergraduate courses
Bachelor in Acting
Professional Diploma in Stage Management and Technical Theatre
Foundation Diploma in Acting and Theatre
None of our courses go through the CAO system, entry is via auditions or interviews. Everyone who applies will get an audition for the acting degree or acting and theatre diploma and an interview for the diploma in stage management and technical theatre. Our updated prospectus can be found here If you would like to receive hard copies of the prospectus, please contact me via the email/telephone number below.
Application forms can be downloaded from http://www.thelir.ie where acting students can also choose an audition date and time. Any student applying for the Stage Management and Technical Theatre course will be sent out a date for interview. Students are asked to meet the matriculation set out by Trinity College Dublin, which can be found via the link below
if however a student does not meet the matriculation, he or she can still apply and in some cases will be allowed to proceed with the audition or interview process. Each case is dealt with on an individual basis.
Both the Bachelor in Acting degree and the Professional Diploma in Stage Management and Technical Theatre fall under the free fees scheme.
