Early application, and early acceptance, are advised to avoid disappointment. Offers to train with us are made continually throughout the audition process and places on all courses are extremely limited.
Fourth Monkey are a diverse school who have welcomed students from all over the world, supporting them throughout their vocational training journey and creating industry-ready professional actors and theatre makers.
To make our auditions as accessible as possible, audition fees across all courses have been abolished. Fourth Monkey are committed to recruiting students for their professional vocational acting training on talent alone.
We are committed to meeting everyone who applies to train with us at audition and to removing potential barriers, offering tailored support and making reasonable adjustments to our workshops, auditions and professional vocational training based on individual need.

We strive to be different from other Drama Schools. We want to support all applicants throughout the application and audition process with us, and we actively encourage applicants to speak with our friendly Admissions Team should they have any questions.
Our approach is to provide the best ‘customer service’ that we are able. We endeavour to answer all admissions queries within 48 hours. We hope to ensure that everyone feels supported, receives clearly communicated information and has a complete understanding of any requirements throughout their Application, Audition and Enrolment with Fourth Monkey.
Applications for auditions close 48 hours in advance of the audition in order for the administration for each audition to be carried out in good time.
Fourth Monkey offer everyone who meet the requirements of the course and submits an application by the advertised deadline the opportunity to participate in a single audition date, rather than incurring the time and expense of multiple recalls. Applicants cannot audition for Fourth Monkey more than once in an academic year.
