Applications and Auditions

A path to world-class training at Urdang

Scroll to content
Urdang Academy

For all of its courses, Urdang looks for candidates with talent, ambition and personality who are committed, disciplined and hardworking.

Potential and personality are as equally valued as previous experience and attainment. We are looking for raw talent that shines, as well as talented students with previous training. We know that applications and auditions can be stressful, so we’ve set our process below.

Online applications and regstrations for Open Days go live each September.

Everyone who submits an application will be invited to audition.

Applications for 2020 Entry

We apologise for the continued delay in the publication of our UCAS codes. The BA (Hons) Degree will be running next year and we urge you to make an online application for an audition without delay if you have not already done so.
The UCAS codes will be published in February at which point you will need to apply for the Degree programme via UCAS.  We are able to confirm that UCAS applications for the Degree will be guaranteed equal consideration (as though you had applied before 15th January) until at least 31st March.
If you have submitted your UCAS form already with less than 5 choices you can add in our Degree once the codes have been announced. If you have submitted your UCAS form with all 5 choices you can still add our Degree via UCAS Extra from the end of February.
If you have any further queries please email us at: admissions@theurdang.london

The Process

1.  Register your email address and choose a password page here to start an online application. You will then receive an activation email to confirm your details. Do check your junk/spam folders for this. We regret that all our Open Days are now fully booked.

2. Complete the online full-time courses application form with your personal details and upload the requested photographs. You should select your FIRST CHOICE course, but you will be considered for others according to your age and qualifications.

3. Make a payment of £45 for the first-round college audition. This fee is non-refundable.

4. You will receive confirmation of registration and receipt of audition payment via e-mail.

5. You will be allocated a first-round audition date and be told what to wear and prepare for the audition day via e-mail (a record of all communications can be found under ‘Messages’ when you log into your account). You will be asked to take part in a ballet class, a jazz class and to prepare two contrasting songs from musicals (bring along piano sheet music for both) and an acting monologue of your choice. There is no need to prepare a dance solo in advance.

6. Log back in to confirm your audition date. (We cannot process your application without this, but you can select an alternative date).

7. Attend your audition on the confirmed date. The day usually lasts from 8:30am to around 6.00pm. Parents/guardians will be given a brief talk and tour of the building first thing and then asked to return at the end of the day.

8. Urdang will confirm by e-mail whether your audition was successful or unsuccessful. Unfortunately, we are unable to give feedback.

9. If your audition is successful, you will either be offered a place on a course (see point 12) OR be invited back to a RECALL audition. There is no guarantee of a place at this audition, but you will be re-considered for courses and funding according to your age and qualifications.

10. Login and confirm your Recall Audition date.

11. Attend your Recall Audition on the confirmed date.

12. Urdang will confirm the outcome of your audition via e-mail. If you are successful, you will be offered one of the following:
• A confirmed place on the 16-18 AVT Level 3 Diploma Programme – conditional on academic qualifications
• A confirmed place on the Foundation Programme
• A confirmed place on the Diploma Programme
• A confirmed place on the Degree Programme – conditional on academic qualifications
• A recall audition for any of the above programmes.

13. You must then log in confirm or reject your place within 14 days. This is in order for us to manage the limited spaces we have on each course. If you accept you must agree to the Terms and Conditions of study and pay a deposit (where applicable). You will also be asked to complete a short Medical Questionnaire. If you do not accept by the deadline you will be placed on a waiting list for a place. We will be in touch later in the year should a suitable place become available.

14. If you are unable to make an audition in person, please contact us and we can provide details of how to prepare a video audition.

Applications

Applications for 2020 Entry

Applications are still live, however we recommend making one as soon as possible.

At this late stage audition spaces are in short supply so there is unlikely to be much flexibility in rescheduling your appointment. If you are unable to make the date please email us – we can also give you the option of making a video audition.

Please register and you will receive an activation email (check your junk or spam folder if you do not receive it immediately).  Audition dates are listed under Key Dates.

We apologise for the continued delay in the publication of our UCAS codes. The BA (Hons) Degree will be running next year and we urge you to make an online application for an audition without delay if you have not already done so.

The UCAS codes will be published very soon at which point you will need to apply for the Degree programme via UCAS.

We are able to confirm that UCAS applications for the Degree will be guaranteed equal consideration (as though you had applied before 15th January) until at least 31st March.

If you have yet to be seen for an audition or are in receipt of an offer from us at that time we can provide you with further guidance.
