We audition or interview for all our courses – either in person or online – and this is an important aspect of our selection process. Our audition/interview process a two-way process, so as well as us finding out more about your passion, skills and experience, it is also your opportunity to find out more about us, and if we are a good fit for you. 

When you first submit your application to us, we will review the information provided and assess your suitability for the course, as well as your current or predicted qualifications. We may be in touch to request additional information if needed. Following this, you may be invited to audition/interview. During your audition/interview our friendly and supportive staff will do all they can to put you at ease – remember, we want you to do well.

Typically, over half our international applicants will participate in a live online event using either Microsoft Teams or Zoom. In addition, we host a small number of in-person audition/interview events outside of the UK, details of which are typically listed on the relevant country page on our website. We will invite you to what we consider to be the most suitable option for you, typically based on your location and upcoming audition/interview availability. 

Alternatively international applicants are welcome to attend one of our UK audition/interview events. 

However and wherever you audition, you will be considered equally and fairly – there is no advantage or disadvantage through any method.
