What you need to know...

Congratulations and welcome to East 15 Acting School!

This page will provide you with all the information you need to get started.

Life at East 15

Welcome Day

Once you have paid your course deposit, you will receive information via email regarding Welcome Day. This event is an opportunity for us to inform new students about East 15, what to expect on your course and how to prepare for it.

You will have an opportunity to ask any questions about the course and the support that is available to you, including accommodation and funding, find out about the equipment you may need for your course and any preparation you need to undertake.

Welcome Day is a great way to find out more. We strongly recommend that you try to attend if you are able, but it is not compulsory. If you cannot attend, information given out on the day will be emailed to you at a later date.

Please note, students must register to attend this event using the link provided in your e-vite.

Accommodation - Southend

University Square is the on-site accommodation at our Southend Campus. Just a 2 minute walk to the main Gateway Building and Town Centre and a 5 minute walk to our Clifftown Theatre, University Square flats all have en suite bathrooms and shared kitchens. There is also a large common room, launderette and courtyard. 

You can find out more about applying for on-site accommodation here.


You can start your University registration online, but every new student must also attend registration on campus. It’s how we know you’ve arrived and are ready to start your course, so don’t miss it!

When you register, you become an official member of our Community and get full access to our facilities and services. You’ll need to register at the right time for your course, so make sure you look at your registration schedule to see when you and your classmates are due to register.
