RCS holds auditions internationally!  If you wish to audition at any of the locations below, we encourage you to submit your application (via UCAS Conservatoires) at least one month in advance to guarantee your place at your requested audition site.  Applications received less than one month in advance cannot be guaranteed a live audition, though we will make every effort to fit you in.

If you are outside the UK, please remember that you can always submit a recorded audition instead of auditioning live and it will be reviewed equally.  More information can be found in our Apply section of the website.

  • Australia (Modern Ballet programme)

  • Japan (Modern Ballet programme)
  • Singapore **UPDATED** (Music programmes)
  • South Korea (Drama & Music programmes)
