Admission to the Master of Arts in Theatre

To be considered for admission to the Master program, applicants are required to show completion of a Bachelor’s degree in theater, dance, circus arts, or an equivalent degree. It is also possible to apply “sur dossier” for candidates with proven artistic experience at the professional level. Admission to the program is subject to the positive evaluation of the application documents and the admission exam.

The admission procedure to the Master of Arts in Theatre / Physical Theatre is divided into three phases:

1. Application form
2. Admission exam
3. Matriculation

1. Application form
Applicants must send the application form below, compiled in all of its parts, enclosing the required documents (important information about the application terms and the application form can be found on the side). Applications will be evaluated and results communicated by April 10, 2019. Successful applicants will be invited to the exams.

2. Admission exam
Successful candidates are invited to attend the admission exam, which takes place at the headquarters of the Accademia, and consists of a practical exam and a personal interview. The practical exam (about 120 minutes) requires skills in improvisation and theatrical movement and composition.
