Job opportunities

The theater education educates professional actors. Emphasis is placed on the individual student's individual expression and uniqueness. For three years, students have the opportunity to explore a wide range of themes, inspirations and styles. This will be the start of developing the individual student's artistic signature, which is based on theatrical methods taught throughout the course of the education.

The theater education educates professional actors. Many of our students have formed their own theater companies.

Former students from Nord University have performed on almost all stages of importance in Norway. Former students work or have worked at the National Theater, Trøndelag Theater and Hålogaland Theater, to name a few.

Former students also work with film and television, including in NRK. In the spring of 2015, our former students Stine Fevik and Inga Ibsdotter Lilleaas were nominated for the Hedda Prize and the Amanda Prize, respectively.

The school collaborates with Det Norske Teatret to educate actors with a multicultural background, the offer is called Det multinorske.
