Drama school  International Applications


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:

Record two audition pieces as outlined in our Audition Guidelines:

Speech one - a contemporary monologue (from a play written post-2000)

Speech two - a piece of poetry OR spoken word OR a second contemporary monologue (this piece should be contrasting from your first and can, but does not have to be, self-written)

We ask that pieces are no longer than 2 minutes in length, so please edit where necessary.

Guide for filming

-  At the beginning of your video state the name of the piece and character that you are performing

-  Film your videos landscape

-  Make sure that you are in a well-lit space with a plainish background so that we can see you clearly

-  Your smartphone is perfect for filming - you do not need any professional equipment

-  Frame your videos waist up:



Once you have recorded both videos they need to be uploaded as a private/unlisted video/s to Vimeo/YouTube and a link returned to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please label your video/s with your full name.

Your videos will be assessed by the panel and if successful we will invite you to complete Stage 2 of the audition.
