Re: Auditioning for 2023 entry

Maintenance loans are only for first degrees. DADAs can be awarded for the Trinity Diploma. Not everyone however is awarded one and for the majority of people, a student loan with a maintenance loan is far more desirable - hence people opting for student finance at places like Mountview and ArtsEd ...

Re: Auditioning for 2022 entry

Hi, Does anyone have any experience with Drama Studio London in Grange Court London W5. My dd has been offered a place on the 1 year course in Acting and wondered how their training is and their productions as well as any work opportunities after the training. Do they easily get agent representatio...

Re: Auditioning for 2023 entry

Can someone clarify for me please, if the college doesn’t qualify for student loans, only for dadas, does that mean that you can’t apply for a government maintenance loan? I know you can get some maintenance loan with a dada (up to £30000 income), but what happens if you don’t qualify for that?

Re: Auditioning for 2023 entry

Yes I did, it was great wasn’t it! Dd was in group 4, she absolutely loved the whole experience, the people she met, the supportive environment and the independence. She had the time of her life and feels like she’s learnt a lot not just about acting, but about herself.

Re: Auditioning for 2023 entry

Hi biscuitneeded, I’m glad you’ve started this thread. Dd is in the exactly same position as your ds, she’s in the process of making her shortlist of places she’d like to audition for - straight acting as well. Doing the NYT intake course this summer has confirmed this is definitely the path she wan...

Fourth Monkey

Hi, did anyone train or is training with Fourth Monkey? Is it considered a good drama school? I’d be interested to hear any opinions, good and bad. Thank you.

Re: Auditioning for 2022 entry

Thanks for your response. Yes she has already done a 3 year Diploma in Musical Theatre at a London Drama School. She wants to pursue acting though. Their 1 year diploma is changing into a Masters in Professional Acting so it gives an ideal qualification and we would get funding. She would not have ...

Re: The end or the start - who knows

So, yesterday dd left full time training. After a lot of training was lost at her first college and her agent showcase was cancelled due to covid she decided to do a postgraduate course. Unfortunately funding/finances means that she only completed the Core part of that course where she performed in...

Re: The end or the start - who knows

I suppose they don't usually move students from the 1 year core to their masters as there is an additional year that can be taken after the core (even if the 2 separate years can be stand alone).At the same time I suppose they don't get usually get students like your daughter who have already done ...

Re: Auditioning for 2022 entry

Daughter has been offered East fifteen foundation. She's an actor rather than MT. She's still got 1 or 2 other things to consider but will possibly be taking. That’s great news, congratulations! Thank you. I thought I'd say something re straight acting as a few of the last posts have been about it....

Re: NYT results day

Just seen this. DS was also lucky this year after a no last year (which was fully expected - even more delighted to have the yes this time). It's going to be an expensive summer as he is also doing NYMT, but he's 17 and has a part time job so can contribute. He's trying to decide between applying f...

Re: NYT results day

Thank you, she’s 16. From what I understand they prefer them to be a little older. Your dc did well to get so far and next time will be more experienced and mature, so will stand a better chance.
