You will be allocated an audition date in London at the School once your application has been received.
You are advised to apply as early as possible. The first round of undergraduate audition places is allocated in November of each year for entry in the following September. Undergraduate and postgraduate applications remain open until January, but the later you apply the more likely it is that there will not be available audition slots. In addition to auditions at The Place, there are specifically targeted auditions in other countries each year. International students should be sure to apply early enough to allow for visa application if necessary.
If you are successful in your first round audition, you may be invited for a recall audition in December, February or March.
You are welcome to contact us before your audition to discuss any questions or concerns you may have, and to arrange a visit to the School. We hold a number of open days during term times, and may be able to arrange visits for other times. You can also watch videos about life at LCDS on our Virtual School page. We hope that most candidates selected for the recall will be able to visit the School between their first and second auditions.
In some circumstances applicants who are unable to attend any of the auditions in London, Europe, USA or Canada may be able to submit a video audition. Due to the availability of audition places in Europe, the School can only accept video auditions in exceptional circumstances from candidates who live within Europe.
