Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

Central stands at the forefront of training and research in the Dramatic Arts. Graduate employment statistics are amongst the highest in our sector, and our research has recently been assessed as ‘World Leading’ – and is unique in the realm of drama conservatoires. The ratio of undergraduate applications to places is the highest of any UK university.

Whilst our actors win many of the most coveted awards, worldwide, and frequent accolades in the media, a broad range of industry organisations rank Central as the gold standard in leadership of technical and design work. So too, Central continues as a pioneering force in the application of dramatic skills in many social contexts.

We hope that you will wish to explore the range of courses, both undergraduate and postgraduate, set out on this website. Do visit for an open day, or come to our regular public productions – focused around the historic Embassy Theatre.

Our facilities are widely regarded to be exemplary with further specialised studios and performance spaces to be added as part of a dynamic new development.
