At LSDA, we understand that it is not always practical to fly to the UK to audition, so we accept recorded auditions from those overseas in the following formats (click to reveal):
File Sharing / Email - Preferred method
When applying this way we would like you to perform two audition pieces; one modern and one classical, each lasting around two minutes in length. Both should be from published plays. We would encourage you to choose pieces that you have previously worked on, if possible, and which are suited to your age and gender. After the audition pieces, please talk a little about yourself: what you have done, your reasons you are applying, your aspirations as an actor, etc..

You should only contact us with your audition recording after you have submitted your completed application form.
You can study in the UK without a student visa if:
• you are a national of a country in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland;
• you are a British Overseas Territories citizen, unless you are from one of the sovereign base areas in Cyprus;
• you are a Commonwealth citizen with permission to enter or stay in the UK because at least one of your grandparents was born here; or
• you have no conditions or time limit attached to your stay.
If you are a non-EU student it is likely you will need a visa in order to study at LSDA. As the regulations change frequently for different countries, it is advisable to check with the British embassy in your own country to ensure you meet the relevant requirements. If you need any official details about our courses, please email us.

LSDA’s response to the result of the EU Referendum:
We at the LSDA (London School of Dramatic Art) are proud of and value the diversity of our student body, who come to study with us from across Europe and the rest of the world. The result of the recent Referendum does not change this and we will continue to welcome International students.
We wish to reassure current and prospective students that the vote to leave the European Union does not mean there will be any immediate change to the immigration status of current and prospective EU students. Any changes to the immigration status of EU students are likely to take several years. EU students with a place to start in academic year 2016/17 or 2017/18 will not be affected.
If you have any questions or concerns, we invite you to contact us directly so that we may be able to provide you with additional reassurance and answer any specific questions you have.
