Applications for entry in September 2017 are now open and close on 18 April 2017. Please see the FAQ Section for application deadlines.
There is an intake of up to four students in September each year.
- 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.
Equality and Diversity
We consider diversity to be enriching and a vital part of what makes us one of the world leaders in providing vocational training.

We welcome applications from disabled applicants and encourage them to disclose relevant information regarding any disability when completing their application form, to enable us to provide additional support during the interview process. There is more information for disabled applicants on the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama website.
