Planning to apply to drama school? If you’d like to learn more about preparing for acting auditions or applying to drama school, our exciting two-week course offers a comprehensive introduction to audition technique.

Key information

In order to train on this course, you should have a level of English that is approximately IELTS 6.0. Although English language tests aren't mandatory, we recommend that if you are a non-native English speaker without a Level 6 IELTS, then you must have the equivalent English language experience. This will be assessed via telephone interview by the Admissions team.

You can apply for this course through LAMDA directly. There is no application deadline for this course, but we advise you to apply early, as places are limited.

All about the course

While concentrating on the techniques needed to approach auditions, this course also provides an insight to the fun and rigours of drama training.

Taught by the same tutors and industry professionals that teach our full-time acting courses, the course provides industry insight on audition preparation, including selecting appropriate speeches, and making a positive impression in an audition room.

The course culminates in a day of mock auditions, where you’ll be able to use your new skills and techniques; performing speeches, sight-reading, singing and presenting scene work for camera.

This course is not validated by a higher education institution (HEI). It is one of LAMDA’s own range of non-accredited courses. Once you've completed the course, you will receive a LAMDA short course certificate.

What will I be doing?

Each day will be different, but you can expect the teaching to take shape in any of the following formats:

  • Vocal technique
  • Physical/movement
  • Acting for the screen
  • Group and one-to-one sessions working on modern and classical speeches*

*Please note that material recorded on this course cannot be made available for use outside of LAMDA.
