DIT offering full-time Drama training since 1991

The Ordinary Bachelor of Arts in Drama (Performance) is a three-year, full-time Degree programme focusing on the study of acting and drama in performance and facilitation contexts. DIT has been offering Drama training since 1991, formerly under the College of Music. While performance is at the core of the programme, rigorous academic demands, including scholarly research and written analyses, underpin the performance and drama facilitation work.

Recent graduates of the programme have gone onto to work for a variety of prestigious companies including: The Abbey Theatre, The Royal Shakespeare Company, London's West End, RTE and TEAM Theatre Company. Many have also been accepted to highly competitive postgraduate programmes, at diploma and masters level, in such celebrated institutes as the Central School of Speech and Drama (London), Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts (London) and the Guildford School of Acting, as well as UCD, NUI Maynooth and St. Patrick's College, DCU.

The programme is based in the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama, Rathmines, Dublin 6. Applicants must apply through the CAO, not later than 1st of February. They are also required to attend an audition, for which a two-to-three minute monologue must be prepared.

DIT is looking for students with potential. This means openness to the demands of performance, inquisitiveness about drama, and an ability to work intently with others.
