Theatre Directing


18 months, Blended | IUGTE with NIPAI

Become a director by performing, experimenting, learning and creating performances and shows. Our students learn from day one through hands-on experience.​

Our goal is to empower students to make their performances engaging, to inspire their team for productive work, and make the audience enjoy the show!

Learn how to:

Read and analyze a play

Formulate a plot

Work with your colleagues in theatre

Communicate with actors effectively

Use director’s tools to prepare actor for role

Be prepared for the first meeting with actors

…and much more!

Directing job by numbers:

Our students are theatre practitioners who wish to improve their directing skills, gain hands-on experience, develop practical knowledge, and find new approaches for effective communication with the crew.

The Program includes:


Professional growth

First hand experience

Emphasis on practical learning

Up-to-date knowledge

Individual approach

Unique method

Our teachers are accomplished and working professionals who come from unique backgrounds and experiences. They are directors, scenographers, stage designers and choreographers who have worked on dozens of international theatre projects. They all dedicated many years to the exploration of performing arts, and have become true professional experts in the field.

The core of every program​ at NIPAI is learning by doing!

What does it mean?

In the last semester of the program, every student of the Theatre Directing Diploma Course does their own Study Project – Graduation Performance which shall be produced in a theatre organization or with a theatre group. You will work with actors and the crew on a real project!



Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive NIPAI Diploma.

We are proud of our students from all around the world!
