RADA Shakespeare Summer School
APPLICATIONS AND ADMISSIONS
HOW TO APPLY
Please complete an application form and return to:
RADA, 62-64 Gower Street,
London, WC1E 6ED
Although there is no application deadline, places are limited and therefore early booking is recommended. All applications are considered in order of receipt. If your application is received after the course is full, you will be put on the waiting list. If, for any reason, the Course Director feels that you have not enough experience, you will not be accepted onto the course.
CANCELLATIONS & INSURANCE
The application form contains full details of our cancellation policy. It is strongly recommended that all students insure themselves to cover the loss of fees in the event of illness, for which the Academy cannot accept any liability.
Accommodation can be arranged for Shakespeare Summer School students who are aged 18+ at Schafer House, 184 Drummond Street, London NW1 3HZ at the rate of £1,080 for 26 nights (Monday July 16 to Friday August 10 inclusive). There are limited rooms available and they are allocated on a first come first served basis.
Schafer House is basic student accommodation, owned by University College London, a ten-minute walk from RADA. Single room accommodation, with a hand basin, is provided. There are communal bathrooms and a small kitchen available (please note no kitchen utensils are provided). Linen is included, but bring your own towel. A coin-operated launderette is on the premises.
Accommodation is secure, but you are advised to take reasonable security precautions e.g. not leaving valuables unattended in your room, or leaving doors and windows unlocked. Floors are mixed sex, and the accommodation is used by many organisations over the summer.
- All students must undertake to conform to the General Rules and Regulations of the Academy. The Academy's Director or Course Director shall, at their absolute discretion, have the right to terminate the course in respect of any student whose presence or conduct is in contravention of the same.
- Friends or other persons who are not officially enrolled are not permitted to sit in on classes, rehearsals or presentations.
- Students must understand, conform and adhere to the Academy's Health and Safety Procedures and Policies.
- All students are expected to wear the correct and appropriate clothing for each class.
- Students are expected to maintain a professional standard of dress and hygiene at all times.
- Fees are non-returnable once a student has started a course.
- Photography or recording of any kind is strictly prohibited in the classroom areas without permission from the Academy's staff.
- RADA does not discriminate against applicants on the grounds of sex, disability, ethnicity or sexuality. We welcome applicants from disabled people and offer places solely on the basis of potential and suitability for the course. The school is mainly housed in a newly-refurbished building which provides good access for wheelchair users.
- Decisions made by the Academy regarding the selection of instructors, the allocation of students to study groups, the material for that study group and any roles allocated are final and not open to negotiation.
- It is strongly recommended that students insure themselves to cover any medical or transport costs and loss of fees in the event of illness or accident for which the Academy cannot accept any liability.
- If, for reason of epidemic or national crisis, the Academy is compelled to close during the course, no fees can be returned or compensation be made for any period of tuition that may have been lost through the Academy's inability to carry on its work.
- It is important to note that the Academy does not accept responsibility for students beyond the scheduled teaching hours on the RADA premises. These are Monday to Friday 9:00am to 6:00pm. Parents are therefore advised to ensure that adequate supervision of activities undertaken in the evening and at weekends is provided, as appropriate, during the duration of the course.
