Want to know what our best advice on getting into drama school for offstage training is? 😏⠀
Drama schools offer a variety of off stage training opportunities for people of all abilities, including theatre design, stage management and theatre directing. Following these easy steps will ensure you are as prepared as you can be to get into the drama school of your choice.⠀
Know your stuff:⠀
- Research the school. Find out about the quality of teachers and what their backgrounds are in the industry. Look up the people interviewing you.
- Have a good understanding of what you will be studying on that course, the lessons you will be taking, the practitioners you will be studying and the contact hours. Understand how this course sets itself apart from others and also why you want to study there.⠀
- It can be helpful to go to an open day or watch a showcase at the school, seeing the place in person can help you see the atmosphere, which you won’t get from just researching online.⠀
Research the school’s graduates, especially those who took the course you are wanting to study and see what their career path has been since graduating.
It’s also a good idea to look at the school’s satisfaction survey which you can find online. This will give you an idea of what current students think of the teaching.
Nail the interview:⠀
Make sure you have understood what the school has asked you to prepare. Each school may ask for different things, so double check you know what you need to bring along with you on the day...⠀
