Open days

Our Undergraduate and Postgraduate open days allow you to discover what it’s like to be a student at the Royal Academy of Dance, while our Faculty of Education (FoE) events will support students and graduates as they progress in their studies and careers.

Undergraduate & Postgraduate open days at the RAD, London

At our open days, you will be able to learn much more about the undergraduate or postgraduate programmes that you are interested in.  You will meet current students and staff, join in practical sessions, tour our building and facilities and gather for an informal lunch to find out information on all aspects of life at the RAD should you choose to study with us. It’s not just about the information, it’s also about the experience, so why not book your place now?

Our open days for 2019 (applicants applying for Sept 2020) are as follows:

  • Monday 21 October 2019 at Yorkshire Dance, Leeds (10am – 2pm – tbc)
  • Thursday 24 October 2019 at RAD headquarters, London (10am – 3pm)
  • Thursday 14 November 2019 at RAD headquarters, London (10am – 3pm)

It is essential to book for our open days.

PGCE: Dance Teaching – NQT networking events

Further information on Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) networking events will be posted here in due course.

PGCE: Dance Teaching – Train to Teach events

Train to Teach events are the perfect opportunity to find out more about teacher training and receive advice from experts and training providers. They’ll tell you everything you need to know about funding,  different training courses, how to submit a successful application and what a career in teaching is really like.   The RAD has completed its event attendance for the 2018-19 application year.

Throughout 2018/19, the FoE will be present at a number of UCAS exhibitions and careers fairs where we will be promoting our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of study to prospective students. If you can’t come and visit us at one of our open days, then do come and see us at one of the exhibitions so you can speak to staff members about the RAD and the programmes that we offer.
