Auditioning for East 15

The East 15 audition process is very thorough and has been commended for the opportunity it provides for applicants to demonstrate their full potential.

Applicants will generally receive feedback and suggestions during the audition. Many UK acting schools restrict applicants to a three minute audition; by comparison East 15 offers a period of up to six hours, including opportunities to ask questions and engage with staff.

Please note that the following courses are now closed for 2019 entry. Applications for 2020 entry will open in October.

BA Acting
BA Acting (International)
BA Acting & Contemporary Theatre
BA Physical Theatre
BA Acting & Stage Combat
Cert HE in Theatre Arts - Loughton Campus. We are still accepting applicants for the Southend based course.

Campus audition days

Applicants are auditioned at the campus where their chosen courses are based, however, we also offer a number of joint campus audition days.

When choosing your preferred audition date (you can do this when you complete our direct application form) please take note of the following:

  • If you are only applying for courses based at our Loughton campus, please choose either a Loughton or Joint campus date.
  • If you are only applying for courses based at our Southend campus, please choose a Southend campus date. If you are unable to make a Southend date, you can choose a Joint campus audition date, however, the Joint campus dates are held at Loughton so you will not get the chance to see the Southend campus if you choose one of these dates.
  • If you are applying for both Loughton and Southend based courses please choose a Joint campus date. If you choose a single campus date you will only be considered for your course choices based at the campus that you audition at.
