Due to the ongoing restrictions regarding the COVID 19 pandemic, we will not be auditioning at any international centres for 2022 entry, and all first round December auditions will be submitted online with a deadline of 4pm on Friday 29 October 2021. Guidance for submitting your first round audition items is in the section on video auditions. Application deadlines are in the Your Application section.

Following the first round submission, applicants may be invited to attend online Programme Assessments in December where they can discuss their suitability for their course with Academy staff. Heads of Department may also invite applicants to discuss their application further in December, either live or online, and to have the opportunity to perform live should they wish to travel to the Academy. All applicants will be considered for a scholarship award, irrespective of whether or not they are invited to an interview or live audition.

Here is a list of audition dates for entry in September 2022. Most London auditions are held in December. For details of how we let you know about your audition date and time, see Tracking your Application on the Your Application page.
