The National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) is an independent public company and is accorded national status as a training institution by the Australian Government. NIDA delivers education and training in the higher education sector in the dramatic arts that is characterised by quality, diversity, innovation and equity of access.

Established in Sydney in 1958 and enrolling its first students in 1959, NIDA has been a driving force in the growth and development of Australia’s performing arts for over fifty years.
