Do you hold Open Days?

If you are interested in a course at our Southend Campus, please check the University of Essex website for dates and further information about Open Days. 

Unfortunately we do not hold Open Days or personal tours for any Acting courses at our Loughton Campus, however our Audition Days provide the opportunity for you to tour the Campus and meet with our students and staff.

We hold student productions throughout the year at our Corbett Theatre in Loughton and Clifftown Theatre in Southend. This is a good opportunity for applicants to come and see our school as well as see our students in action. We also tour to central London venues, details of which can be found here.

For more information, please see our Open Days page.
