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 and have be given either the pre-settled or settled status;
• 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.
