For its 2016 student intake, the National Institute of Circus Arts is casting the net wider than ever before to attract applicants from across Australia and from a wide diversity of backgrounds.

NICA is inviting aspiring circus artists to submit their applications for entry into the 2016 suite of courses, including the Bachelor of Circus Arts course and the Certificates III and IV in Circus Arts. Applications are now open and close on Monday, September 14 2015, with auditions taking place around Australia from September 21 to October 18 2015.

NICA offers Australia’s only Bachelor of Circus Arts, which is a three-year university degree accredited by Swinburne University of Technology and conducted at NICA’s purpose built facilities in Prahran, Melbourne.

NICA’s Bachelor of Circus Arts provides a great career opportunity for those with some background in physical training such as circus, sport, dance, physical theatre, gymnastics, acrobatics, martial arts, diving or trampoline. A background in circus is not necessary. Those with a flair for the physical and a desire for a challenge should consider applying for this prestigious course.

Those not yet ready for entry into the degree course can opt to audition for a foundation year in the Certificate IV in Circus Arts. Those in Year 11 or Year 12 considering a circus career can undertake a Certificate III in Circus Arts as part of a VCE program.

NICA graduates have established successful careers in Australia and internationally with acclaimed companies including Circus Oz, Circa, NoFit State Circus and Cirque du Soleil to name a few.

Entry into NICA’s accredited courses in 2016 is by audition, interview and physiotherapy assessment. Applicants must have completed Year 12 or equivalent to be eligible for the Bachelor of Circus Arts program and are required to apply for an audition via the NICA website at www.nica.com.au or by contacting NICA’s Student Administrator by email info@nica.com.au or on 03 9214 6975.

Applications close on Monday 14 September 2015.

When: Saturday 10 October 2015
Where: Warehouse Circus, 4/70 Maclaurin Crescent Chifley
