Applications now open for entry in 2021
Applications are now open for undergraduate courses and the postgraduate diploma, for entry to RADA in September 2021!
As everyone makes adjustments in light of the Covid-19 restrictions, we've made some changes to our admissions procedure this year.
For the BA (Hons) in Acting, all preliminary and recall auditions will now be conducted via a self-taped video, which applicants will record and submit to us online. These will consist of three speeches and an unaccompanied song; when you have submitted your application form, we'll send you more details of how to create and upload your video.
Third round workshop auditions will take place online, and we hope to invite those of you who progress to the fourth and final round to an in-person day workshop at RADA.
As part of our commitment to making our training accessible to everyone, this year we have significantly reduced the BA (Hons) in Acting application fee to £34 - this is a flat rate, with no additional charge at recall or later stage auditions. If you're a UK student from a state school with a lower household income, you won't need to pay this; find out all the details here.
For the FdA and BA in Technical Theatre and Stage Management, and the Postgraduate Diploma in Theatre Costume, interviews will be held online. You'll still have the chance to show us some of the work you've done, and we encourage you to share example of creative projects, whether from theatre or anything else that shows us your creative or technical skills and interests. It's free to apply to all of our Theatre Production courses.
While we're not able to invite applicants or a tour or in-person open day, we're planning a digital event which we will announce details of soon. You can sign up to our mailing list for Acting here or Theatre Production here to receive news about this in due course.
Our MA Theatre Lab course will now be running from January to January each year, so applications for this course will open in early 2021. Sign up to be the first to hear about MA applications here.
We look forward to meeting you at auditions and interviews soon!
