Here’s a comparison of our diploma program with other British Columbia acting schools:
- Vancouver Film School: Acting for Film and Television (Diploma Program), $20,500 + GST
- Vancouver Institute of Media Arts: Arts (Diploma Program), $19,750 + GST
- Victoria Academy of Dramatic Arts: Acting for Film and Theatre (Diploma Program), $13,000 + GST (16 students per session)
At VAD Arts there are no hidden costs, no extra books or supplies you need to purchase. Everything you need to get your actor training for a very competitive price. We feel this is important when choosing an acting school.
Considering Acting School?
Here are some things you’ll need to think about:
1. Full-time Acting for Film & TV Diploma Program vs. part-time classes
- If you want to immerse yourself in the experience, full-time programs provide the intensity and curriculum to prepare you as an actor. Part-time programs are an excellent choice if you’re looking for specific skills or aren’t sure if you’re ready to commit to a full-time program.
- There are a number of factors that influence the cost of a program, many that have little to do with the quality of instruction. A priority should always be to make sure a school offers top quality instructors with appropriate backgrounds (regardless of cost).
3. Class Size
- Smaller class sizes are definitely favourable as they offer a better learning experience and will result in dramatically more personal attention.
