Support and wider benefits for alumni after training at LAMDA
LAMDA’s training is about longevity, not only working with students while they’re physically at the school, but beyond, in all their ventures.
We’re continually working on new ways to develop the connection between LAMDA and our alumni, across all our courses.
Genesis LAMDA Mentoring Network
Our mentoring programme Genesis LAMDA Network, allows our final-year MFA and BA (Hons) Professional Acting students to continue to be supported by LAMDA and a suitable mentor after they graduate. Become a mentor and find out more about the programme via the link below.
We listened to feedback and requests from alumni who were keen to re-connect with fellow classmates and support one another post-graduation. We have launched a new platform, called LAMDA Connect to support our Alumni globally across all sectors and industries, not just the arts. The platform is designed for alumni to share their projects, collaborate and take part in mentoring one another. We are keen to see the platform grow.
Monthly Alumni News Article
Each month we pull together the latest news from our actors and technicians and share their latest projects on the News & Features page.
If you'd like to share your latest production with a larger audience, share your news to be featured.
Read the latest alumni news on the News & Features page.
Opportunities & further support
We’ve welcomed back alumni to teach on our short courses, host events and assist our current students. LAMDA also regularly engages in alumni development activity as artists in their own right, supporting them as actors, photographers and tutors at LAMDA with the overall aim of carrying on LAMDA’s vision beyond the course and training itself. If you're interested in working closely with LAMDA, email us.
Our alumni newsletter is a tailored email for alumni to hear about relevant news from the drama school. It regularly includes stories and interviews, discounts on tickets for theatre productions and invitations to exclusive events.
Select Alumni news as a preference on the form.
We're always looking to feature news for our monthly feature. We want to give our alumni a larger platform to be able to reach greater audiences for productions or share news on a new business venture. Whatever the story, we're keen to hear. Send us an email with your update or share your story on LAMDA Connect, tagging the admin account. Read some recent stories below.
