Auditioning for East 15

Given the current concerns regarding COVID-19, if there are any changes to our confirmed audition schedule, we will be in touch with those booked to attend. New applicants who have not yet booked an audition are asked to submit an online audition.

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

Campus audition days

Due to growing concerns regarding COVID-19, we are no longer holding on-Campus auditions. New applicants should submit an online audition

--
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 applying only for Loughton Campus based courses - choose either a Loughton or Joint Campus audition date.
  • If you are applying only for Southend Campus based courses - choose a Southend Campus audition date.
  • If you are applying for a mix of Loughton and Southend Campus based courses - choose a Joint campus audition date.
  • If you are applying for just BA Acting (i.e. entering 1 single course choice),  you should choose an audition date that specifies BA Acting only. These audition days are restricted to applicants only interested in the BA Acting course as the Heads of other degree programmes will not be in attendance.  If you are unable to make any of these sessions, we will audition you on a Loughton or Joint campus audition date but it is preferred that you attend the session specifically organised for the single course.
  • Your audition date will not be confirmed until you receive an official invite by email from East 15. We strongly advise that you do not book travel or accommodation for your preferred audition date until you have received your official invitation.
