Please read this document to find out more about the experience we are committed to offering you, so that you can make informed choices about your studies. You can find an indicative breakdown of modules for this course below. By accepting and enrolling on to a course in 2020/21 – 2021/22 you agree to these changes. For further information see our FAQ page which also highlights that we will be offering blended learning in 2020/21 – 2021/22 and may need to update information on the specific nature of delivery in line with government guidance during each term. 

Please note LAMDA will also communicate reasonable changes to the content, syllabus, mode of delivery, term dates and/or timetable of courses in line with our terms and conditions with students via the News and Updates page on LAMDA World and email during each term. 

Is this course for me?

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

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.

2021 dates will be announced shortly. 

All about the course

Industry professionals, who regularly teach or direct at LAMDA, will guide you through techniques of approaching your chosen speeches to present them with authenticity, clarity and vibrancy. 

Alongside individual coaching sessions, the course will also consist of masterclasses to equip or reacquaint participants with the necessary skills to auditioning for drama schools as well as professional roles. The course will culminate with mock auditions in front of professional directors. 

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?

Over the two weeks you will cover a range of audition techniques. The content includes 

  • One to one sessions with an acting coach
  • Tips and techniques to bring your speeches to life 
  • Masterclasses on the industry, Shakespeare and performance 
  • How to successfully self-tape an audition 
  • Developing successful learning and rehearsing skills
