Next Steps

Thank you for submitting your information.

If you have enrolled on your course you will receive a confirmation email and should refer to your invitation to enrol email for further instructions.

If you have applied to study a Short Course (Evening Course, Summer Short CourseBusiness Course or Diploma) you need to make full payment for the course before we can confirm your place.

For postgraduate (MA/MFA) courses, you should not make any payment to Central at this time. You will be sent an email confirming that your application has been received and forwarded to the Course Team for consideration.

Postgraduate Applications

Your application will be sent to our Admissions and Student Recruitment team and you will receive a confirmation email once this has been received and processed.

Your application will be reviewed by the relevant Admissions Tutor who will look carefully at the information you have given and will decide whether to take your application further.

If you are selected for an audition/interview you will be sent an email inviting you to use our online booking facility to choose your audition/interview slot from the available options.

Audition/interview dates are set around tutors' teaching commitments, so there is little flexibility beyond the options you would find listed. It is strongly advised to book your audition/interview slot as early as you are able to as the slots at the sessions, and places on the courses, do fill up very quickly.

For Acting - Classical, Acting – Contemporary, Acting for Screen, Drama and Movement Therapy and Music Theatre there is a non-returnable audition/interview fee of £50. This is payable through our online booking facility and must be done when booking the audition/interview slot. There is no audition/interview fee for the other Masters programmes.

If you are not selected for audition/interview, or your application has arrived too late to be considered, we will contact you by email.

All applicants will be emailed one way or the other. We are aware that sometimes messages we send can get automatically routed through to junk/spam folders, so please continue to check there for emails from us.

Short Courses Applications

To secure your place on the course, please make the full payment(s) within the next 1-2 working days by credit card, cheque or at Central School Reception.

If you have submitted an application for a diploma course, please pay your deposit within 10 working days otherwise your place may be offered to another applicant.

Your place will be confirmed as soon as once full payment has been received. Please note, your place on the course is not guaranteed until full payment has been made.

How to Pay for Your Short Course

Credit Card

You can pay by credit card by calling 020 7559 3960.


Send a cheque for the full amount to:

The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama
Eton Avenue

Please make cheques payable to Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.

Cheques are not cashed until the end of the month and therefore your place will take longer to confirm. This may result in courses being filled in the meantime therefore we would advise card payments where possible.

We will send you an email confirming your place on the course once payment has been received.
