Open days 2022/23

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.

Come and see us onsite or join us virtually from the comfort of your own home, to learn all about the undergraduate, postgraduate or RAD Award programmes that you are interested in. At our Open Days we will be hosting live Information Sessions with our academic staff who will give an overview of our programmes, you will have the chance to chat to our admissions staff about the application process, and our current students will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about life on one of our programmes. You will also be able to take a look at our students in practice in the studio.

Our next onsite Open day will be on Thursday 27 October 2022. You will be able to tour our new home, take part in dance classes, meet students and staff and see us at work in our amazing new space. Book your Open Day space today!
