Submit your application and prepare for your audition/interview
The next steps depend on your location and your course type. Some of our courses require an audition, while others require an interview. If your course requires an interview (BA (Hons) or BA top-up Production & Technical Arts or MA Directing) you will be notified after submitting your initial application form.
If you're based in the UK or outside of the US, you'll be asked to submit a self-tape which will be used as your first-round audition.
If you're based in the US you'll be offered an in-person audition as part of our North America Tour.
If you're successful, prepare for your second stage audition
If you're based in the UK or outside of the US and your self-tape is successful you'll be invited to a recall (second-stage audition) in-person at LAMDA.
If you're based in the US and your in-person first round audition is successful, you will be invited to an in-person recall (second-stage audition) in New York or Los Angeles at a later date.
