Auditions and Interviews

Committed to recruiting on talent alone, we audition and/or interview everyone who submits their application by the advertised deadline, providing they meet the age requirements for the course. We do not ask applicants for specific academic qualifications or grades; we ask only for talent, passion and a commitment to learn.  

We hold auditions and interviews for our full-time courses in London, across the UK and internationally from November to June each year. We cannot accept auditions by video. Please click here for audition dates and details of venues outside of London.

Applicants are usually given two to three weeks’ notice of their audition/interview date. However, as this varies and may depend on when an application is received, applicants should be ready to audition/interview at the point of application. Please click here for more information about what you need to prepare for your audition / interview and for further information on auditions and recalls.

Decisions are usually made within two weeks of the audition/interview, but this varies according to the time of year. 

Due to the volume of applications, auditions/interview results cannot be discussed on the telephone under any circumstances. LAMDA is unable to offer deferred entry to any of our courses unless very exceptional circumstances apply.

Note: You are advised to notify us on your application form, prior to audition/interview, if you have a disability. This will allow our Admissions team to provide suitable facilities. If you decide not to disclose a disability, this will limit our ability to meet your needs throughout the admissions process. Applicants should be reassured that any information they disclose that may impact on subsequent training at LAMDA is irrelevant to the decision of the audition panel.


“The Academy has such a down-to-earth atmosphere, which makes LAMDA a safe, nurturing place to hone the skills needed to thrive in the creative industries.”
