The Academy does provide on site jobs and allows the majority of students to work outside of school. However, a good number of on site jobs go to foreign students, because of international work laws.

I have yet to graduate so my knowledge is limited; however based on what I've witness the alumni network is pretty extensive.
Alumni are able to come back as guess speakers and even perform their work at The Academy. Some graduates even come back to teach.
While at the Academy their is a possibility to work in different departments such as Props, or Costumes. Their is even an Director's Assistant position available for 2nd years during the school year.
After you graduate, it is possible to work for these same departments, or be recommended to others.
From what I've witnessed the Alumni Network is the best way to find out about up-coming projects. And this starts from the moment you are a first year. The people you are in class with could very well be a casting director, or director, even a producer when they leave. Its about keeping in touch.
Also, the school has a subscription to Backstage, which is available to students.

Job prospects I would say aren't the best. I think AMDA has better.

Lots of Opportunities. Since my college is a two year college they offer the opportunity to join company in which you build up a resume for future jobs, and they also work alongside st johns to obtain a bachelors.

Different People – Everyone in this school is different in their own ways. They accept international students from all over the globe and it is just amazing to interact with them and learn a little bit about their culture. In my past classes, there have been students from England, Africa, Ireland, Mexico, Austrailia, and even all over the United States. There seemed to be many students from England accepted this year but it is amazing to learn with them. Sometimes it can be different working with them but I enjoy it very much.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
