The Essentials Guide

With a growing number of courses to choose from, it is as important as ever that potential students know the right questions to ask to find the best course for them.

The printed guide, on which this new website is based, was published in 2006 as a result of an initiative led by The Oxford School of Drama and supported by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Central School of Ballet, English National Ballet School, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, The Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, The Royal Ballet School.

This site is essential for anyone looking to train for a career in the performing arts, as it sets out the entitlements that they should expect from the course as well as seven questions that they should ask to assess whether the course they are applying to is of a high quality and right for them.
