LAMDA Pathways Programme

LAMDA's Pathways Programme aims to remove financial barriers and to build clear pathways for talented individuals who are currently underrepresented in higher education and the arts.

It is run and managed by LAMDA’s Access and Widening Participation (AWP) Team, Ella Murdoch (AWP Manager) and Angel Cupidon (AWP Officer). 

To find out more about Pathways and how you might be eligible to get involved, choose the statement below which best describes you:

Through the Pathways Programme we offer: 

  • Free applications to our BA undergraduate courses or our Foundation (CertHE) course
  • Audition fee waivers for our Acting courses (please note, there is no fee for interviews for our Production & Technical Arts course)
  • Travel bursary support for in-person recall auditions, interviews or events at LAMDA (e.g. Open Days)
  • Free workshops that aim to support your application journey 
  • Invitations to our 'Introduction to Drama School’ Days which take place round the country
  • Free tickets to LAMDA productions and opportunities to meet current LAMDA staff and students

Participants who take part in the Pathways Programme (either as an individual or through a partner organisation) do not need to apply to LAMDA’s courses through UCAS. Instead, we will support you to apply directly through us with an application fee waiver.
