If the selection panel would like to see more, you may be asked back for a recall interview on a separate date. Your recall audition may be in person or online.
Should you be short-listed for acceptance into the course after the recall, you may be asked to submit a list of three referees who have seen your work or worked with you in some arts-related capacity. NIDA may contact these referees before making a study offer.
Please note applicants who do not make it through to the recall stage for Master of Fine Arts (Directing) should consider their application unsuccessful for the 2024 intake.
Important note: NIDA may keep all or part of your project until the final selection of applicants is made. Make sure your name is clearly marked on all project materials. Ensure you keep a copy of all written work, as this will not be returned. The project will be available for collection from NIDA during office hours after final selection of applicants is complete. Interstate applicants’ projects will be returned on request. Be prepared to take your project away with you as well, as we may choose not to keep any material.
Preparation: the more time and effort you put into the project and interview preparation in advance, the more confident you will be and the more you will benefit from the interview and discussion.
Come with a clear idea of why you want to study Directing at NIDA.
We know that interviews can be stressful, but every effort will be made to ensure your experience will be as interesting and enjoyable as possible. The interview is designed to give you the very best opportunity to show your potential and readiness to study at NIDA.
