B.A. Honors Bachelor Degree (NFQ Level 8) ; 3 years full-time ; 16 places
What our graduates say
I chose to study at The Lir Academy at Trinity College Dublin because of its strong reputation for theatre and the arts. I got a great feeling during my visit at the open day and also going through the audition process at The Lir – it felt ambitious yet caring, traditional and also ground breaking. My early experience of the staff was that they were outstanding, kind and approachable.
What our current students say
I chose to study the Bachelor of Acting at The Lir Academy because performing arts has always been my a life-long love and with arts forming so much of Ireland’s identity, I wanted to immerse myself not only in world class education at this institute of anthropology, but be a part of a warm, supportive and strong group of artists who foster emerging and diverse talent and set the standard for artistic excellence in one of the most competitive industries in the world. I never felt like an outsider upon my arrival and was welcomed with open arms into a community I can truly call my family and my home away from home.
