Audition Dates and Locations

First-Round Audition Dates

Each year we hold first-round auditions in at RWCMD in Cardiff and in a number of cities around the UK, usually between January and March for entry in September of the same year.

Auditions will also be held in New York and in Chicago in January/February 2020.

Applicants who live outside the UK can submit a video recording. However, you should be aware that we are sometimes unable to make a firm offer of a place on the basis of a recording alone and, if you are shortlisted, you may be asked to attend a recall audition in person at RWCMD in Cardiff.
