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
- Vancouver Institute of Media Arts: Arts (Diploma Program), $19,750
- Victoria Academy of Dramatic Arts: Acting for Film and Theatre (Diploma Program), $13,000 (16 students per session)
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.
