Enrollment at Shanghai Theatre Academy (STA) set a new record at 30,000 in January of 2018, with over 6,000 candidates competing for just 50 spots for a full-time undergraduate acting degree, China Youth Daily reported Monday.

The total number of candidates - 30,929 - was 9,000 more than 2017. The school's acting and broadcasting programs are the most popular among its 22 programs.

About 6,300 students applied for acting and 4,400 candidates vied for broadcasting.

However, only 50 candidates will be accepted for the acting program, including 10 directly recruited by a new film school under STA.

The Academy will invite well-known academics and celebrities to test the candidates and hold work shops for the candidates to improvise creatively.
