Audition or interview date
Following submission of your application to East 15, you will receive confirmation that it has been received. If we require any further information from you, our Admissions Team will contact you by email.
If you have applied for an auditioning course, our tutors will review your Round 1 video audition and we will notify you of the outcome. If you are successful, we will invite you to a Round 2 audition.
If you have applied for an interviewing course only, we will be in touch as soon as possible following receipt of your application to arrange your interview.
Please read our audition guidance and the Application and Audition Terms and Conditions (.pdf) for more details.
All correspondence from East 15 and admissions will be via email. Please ensure that you check your inbox regularly (we also recommend that you check junk/spam folders just in case your email provider filters our emails).
You should expect to hear from us via email within 10 working days of your application - at busy times (usually January to April), this might take longer. The result of your audition or interview will be one of the outcomes below:
If you are offered a place on your preferred course, you will not be considered for any other courses. East 15 will consider you for all courses, taking note of your course preferences. You could, therefore, be recalled and offered a place on a course that you have not applied for but is one that our tutors feel would best suit your skills. If an alternative course is offered, then you have been unsuccessful in your application for your other course choices.
|Round 1 video audition applicants
| Progress to Round 2 audition
|You have been successful in the first stage of your application and will receive an invite to participate in a Round 2 audition. This will take place on campus, at a regional or international audition, or online. At your Round 2 audition, East 15 will consider you for all courses, taking note of your course preferences.
|You have not passed the Round 1 audition and we are not able to offer a place on any of our acting courses at East 15 Acting School. If you have also applied for one of our courses that requires an interview, we will contact you by email to ask if you are still interested and to set up an interview date.
|Round 2 audition and interview applicants
You have been successful at audition or interview and made an offer. You will receive an email form the university with further information on how to access your offer letter in your MyEssex applicant portal. If you applied through UCAS, they will also inform you when a decision has been made on your application.
All East 15 offers are conditional on paying the refundable £200 course deposit (refunds subject to East 15 Course Deposit terms and conditions (.pdf) by the deadline stated in your offer. Your offer may also be based on additional conditions, such as your exam results.
In some cases, we may ask for further information from you before we can process your offer. It is important that you respond as quickly as possible to any information requests. If you fail to provide requested information, you may lose your offer of a place as East 15 Acting School.
We are currently unable to offer you a place at East 15. However, you have been placed on a wait list for one of our courses and we will be in touch later in the year if we able to make you an offer.
There is no guarantee that an offer of a place at East 15 will be offered.
You will be told my email if we close our wait list and are not making any further offers.
Places on our wait lists are for the current point of entry only and cannot be deferred. If we are unable to make you an offer, you will need to re-apply in the next application cycle.
Applicants may receive a ‘rejection’ on their record as we cannot record a wait list decision on UCAS or the university systems. East 15 will hold them on their wait list and, if an offer is made, further information will be sent to the applicant information on how to accept.

Receiving an offer
Successful applicants must submit a response to the University (accepting or declining the offer).
UCAS Applicants: Once you have received a decision from all your choices, UCAS will ask you to accept one offer as your firm (first) choice and one offer as your insurance (second) choice. Please note that East 15 Acting School may not be able to keep places open for applicants who make us their insurance choice. We therefore advise you to either make us your firm choice or decline our offer.
Direct Applicants: If you applied through our Direct Application form, you will need to login to your MyEssex applicant account, click on the Applying tab and then on "Reply to offer" in the task list to accept your offer.
