ALRA Acting Schools in London & Manchester

ALRA International Applications

Drama school  International Applications

ALRA doesn't accept students on short-term basis. If you need to see if this is the ideal career for you and to finding out how a school operates, its 'feel' and its identity come and visit us on an Open Day.

Click here to find out when the next day will be. We advise you to note down questions and concerns before you come and ask as many different people as you can - students, teachers and administration staff. Bring a friend or family - it's useful to have someone to bounce ideas and opinions off afterwards. 

The Question and Answer session after the matinee performance is your chance to meet students in their final year at ALRA – they're getting ready to launch themselves into the professional world. Find out how ALRA's helped them to reach the stage they have.

At ALRA we also run short courses and workshop that are the ideal solution to improve your acting skills. These courses will also give you a taste of what life is like at drama school and test your expectations and aspirations against the realities of vocational training.

International Procedure

ALRA understands the high costs involved for international students wishing to study in the UK who are required to attend an audition. We have a preliminary stage for international applicants which we hope will result in reduced costs for some of our overseas applicants.

We want you to:

      1. Prepare a 30 second piece to camera, which tells us three interesting (non acting!) things about you. Examples can be found here and here.
      2. Perform either your modern or classical, as described above, to camera. Examples can be found here and here.

Both pieces must be recorded and posted to YouTube and a link supplied to the Registrar. Please do not e-mail them as attachments as the quality will not be sufficiently high to assess your work.

Your work will be assessed and if successful you will be invited to audition at ALRA in London or Wigan to complete the stages described in Audition Format above.
