Hi Eloise,

Thank you for your question. There are various places in New Zealand where you can study in order to progress into a career in acting. The Actors Program, Unitec, Toi Whakaari and South Seas are amongst a few organisations that offer acting specific courses.

Another option for you, which may lead in to a career in acting is the option of studying Theatre or Drama. These subjects are common papers taken under a Bachelor of Arts Degree and are offered throughout New Zealand at any major tertiary institution.

I hope this is helpful with your query.

Kind Regards,
