Undergraduate courses are offered in the fields of theatre and radio directing, acting, speech training, set design, costume design, dance and movement, and stage singing. Graduates obtain a university degree in acting or directing. Postgraduate studies cover acting and speech training, theatre and radio directing, set design and costume design.
At the end of each semester, students of acting and directing prepare public theatre productions, dance or music performances, or radio programmes for either internal audiences or the general public, which are developed under the tutorship of the Academy's lecturers and often in collaboration with external creators. These productions are sometimes also co-produced by other theatres and production houses. Thus, in 2009 the Academy prepared the reconstruction of the cult Slovene performance The Noble Mould of Pupilija Ferkeverk [Žlahtna plesen Pupilije Ferkeverk] in co-production with Maska Institute and the Slovene National Theatre Drama Ljubljana, in 2007 the performance Nora Nora, based on text, directed by , and co-produced with ŠKUC Association, etc. The productions are presented at various festivals, for example, 2009 project Project Hamlet [Projekt Hamlet] was included in the side programme at the Borštnik Theatre Festival.
