|Acting courses in Indian Universities|
Entry to this overcrowded profession is extremely difficult. There are usually no minimum educational qualifications for becoming an actor.
Admission to premier schools of drama and acting is open only to graduates with very few exceptions.
Can Training in These Schools Help in Getting Acting Jobs?
However, since acting is involved with so many acts of our society, a formal education in acting craft helps one to be better prepared for the auditions and other challenges of the profession.
