Applications now open for 2019 entry
Applications are now open for our full-time courses for entry in September 2019.
You can now apply to:
- BA (Hons) in Acting
- FdA in Technical Theatre and Stage Management
- BA (Hons) in Technical Theatre and Stage Management (progression year)
- Foundation Course in Acting (non-HE)
Choose where you audition
For our BA (Hons) in Acting and Foundation Course in Acting, there is the option to audition not only in London on-site at RADA, but also across the UK in Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle and Plymouth, as well as overseas in Dublin, New York and Los Angeles. We also hold interviews for our Technical Theatre and Stage Management courses in Manchester and Plymouth.
This gives you the chance to audition closer to home, saving on travel and accommodation costs.
If you reach the third and fourth round of auditions (out of a four-stage process) we will ask to you come to RADA for this, and we offer travel bursaries for those who require them. This will also give you the chance to visit RADA if you haven't already, to see our facilities and meet more of our staff and students.
