This course will qualify individuals who wish to apply a deeper body of knowledge in voice studies in a professional context and establish a career in voice teaching.

You will gain an advanced knowledge of the technical aspects of the of the spoken voice and be able to apply these skills systematically and coherently in your existing discipline or professional area. During the program your knowledge is extended through research based practice and teaching and by applying this knowledge to: the understanding of the relationship between the actor’s voice and classical and contemporary texts; working with the spoken voice in individual and group settings; developing sound diagnostic skills to evaluate idiosyncratic vocal and consolidating and synthesising your cognitive understanding of the anatomy of the voice to practical problem-solving solutions with groups and individuals through the application of sound pedagogical approaches.

The intensive delivery mode of the program is designed to appeal to students already working in a professional context, such as those working in the arts as directors and performers as well as those working in schools and community environments as singing and drama teachers.

Australian Fee Places

If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.

Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.

The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.
