The Acting Studio - New York welcomes English-speaking foreign students and currently hosts students from all around the world. We recommend that students look at our full-time 6-Week Acting Conservatory. You may participate in this program on a B-2 Tourist or ESTA visa as a short recreational course of study which is usually good for 3 month visit or longer. However, please note the Studio does not offer F-1 Student Visas that require an I-20 for participation in an accredited course of study. Those students coming from outside of the United States to study in a much longer term programs must find a visa solution on their own. Nevertheless, the studio is open to helping all students and applicants by providing them with letters, proper documentation, or similar, if he/she requires such to gain a particular visa. We hope to offer our foreign students the M1 Visa at a future date. Please contact us for more information.
