How long is the programme and what do I get at the end of my study?

ITI’s Acting Programme is three years long (full-time) and you will be awarded the Professional Diploma in Intercultural Theatre (Acting) at the end of your study.


How many intakes are there per year?

There is one intake per year; the school year begins every first working day of January. 


Do you offer shorter courses?

We hold occasional workshops during the year which are open to the public. You can watch our events page or join our mailing list to be updated about upcoming workshops. Timely updates are also available on our Facebook page.


When can I apply for admission?

You can apply up to 2 years in advance of the admission year; i.e. in 2023, you can apply for entry in 2024 or 2025.

We practise rolling admissions, so the earlier you apply, the better chances you have as the places may be filled if you apply later.

Please refer to for more information and deadlines.


How do I apply for admission?

Refer to the information here about the selection process, including auditions.


Can I still submit my application after missing the deadline?

We encourage all applicants to submit their applications early to be able to make the auditions planned ahead. For international students, the deadlines are as advised to take into account the time required for a Student’s Pass to be processed. Late applications are accommodated on a case-by-case basis.


What happens after I apply?

After you have submitted your application, complete with supporting documents, we will let you know within two weeks if you have been shortlisted for an audition. If you are shortlisted, we will provide you with details of the audition. Final selection is made through the audition, written assessments and an interview.

If you are successful, we will send you a notice of acceptance. To confirm your place, you will need to sign the Student Contract within 30 days or by the stipulated deadline.


Can I undertake other theatre projects while studying in ITI?

The programme is full-time and requires a high level of commitment. Classes run from 8am to 6pm, Mondays to Fridays, excluding your personal prep time. As such, there is usually little time for external engagements. You will need to obtain faculty permission for any performance-related projects to ensure that they do not interfere with your training.


Do I have to be fluent in English to be accepted?

All applicants are required to be proficient in English. This means you are able to hold a conversation in English without great difficulty and have an effective grasp and understanding of the language. If you do not have the formal qualifications stated in our admission criteria (GCE ‘O’ Level pass in English, or its equivalent), you will be required to take an English Proficiency Test, administered at the time of the audition. Your language proficiency will also be assessed when you are interviewed.
