Postgraduate Diploma in Theatre Costume
Applications for 2018 are now open. Please see the application form for deadlines.
There is an intake of up to four students in September each year.
RADA’s application fee for the Postgraduate Diploma in Theatre Costume for entry 2018 is £31.
RADA offers fee waivers to applicants who are in financial need. If this applies to you then please complete a fee waiver application form and submit this with your programme application.
There are also a number of fee waivers available through the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama.
We interview all eligible applicants who apply before the deadline. The interview, with a panel of members of senior RADA staff, will be held at RADA between November and May.
- If you are certain that a specialist area is your passion, but you have no prior qualification and little previous experience, we would strongly recommend you look at the two-year foundation degree programme in Technical Theatre and Stage Management. The first year will aim to fill your technical theatre experience gap and the second year will allow you to specialise in your chosen subject.
- Applied Previous Learning (APL) - we are happy to consider a candidate's prior experience as an alternative to a prior qualification, especially work at a professional level.
