Postgraduate Programmes

The Academy postgraduate programmes provide opportunities for talented graduates from Hong Kong and abroad to obtain internationally recognised postgraduate qualifications in the performing arts and theatre and entertainment arts. The practice-oriented programmes foster artistry, develop advanced skills, provide in-depth knowledge, and build professionalism for students who demonstrate the potential for excellence. Postgraduate students undertake practical research, apply theory to professional practice, make original contributions to their areas of specialisation, and gain the specialised means and assurance to continue in life-long careers. While valuing independent accomplishment within contexts of collaboration and team effort, study at the postgraduate level is intended to enable practicing artists to develop into potential leaders in the arts.

With an international mix of students and faculty, the Academy postgraduate programmes provide opportunities for students to develop an international perspective in the arts and receive wider cultural exposure. The Academy's state-of-the-art facilities and its six disciplines of Dance, Drama, Film and Television, Music, Theatre and Entertainment Arts, and Chinese Opera provide ample opportunities for postgraduate students to pursue cutting edge and cross-disciplinary work. Postgraduate students are a vital component of Academy life.
