Successfully auditioned or Interviewed? Congratulations! 

Next steps on accepting your place for this summer…. 

How do I accept my place? 

If you haven’t already sent us your acceptance form you need to do so before the below deadline. You can find this form in the link that was sent to you via email which offered you a place. 
Please complete and return to the email address your results was sent from.   

Place acceptance deadlines:

Senior Course: 2nd June (extended by one week) 
Junior Course: 2nd June (extended by one week) 
Epic Course: 2nd June (extended by one week)
Backstage: 2nd June (extended by one week)

What if I’ve already sent my acceptance form?

If you’ve already sent the form you don’t need to send it again or call to check we’ve got it. We’d never give away anyone’s place before contacting you to check you definitely didn’t want it first, so don’t worry, if we haven’t got your form by the deadline, we’ll chase you.  

How can I pay for my course and accommodation? (if required) 

To pay for your course or accommodation you need to go to our website, log in the account you booked your audition with and go to the below URL. You’ll then be able to add the course fee to your basket and the accommodation fee should you wish to stay with us (accommodation is operational – see your course pack for more details.)

Payment deadline: 

Senior Course: 7th July 
Junior Course: 7th July 
Epic Course: 7th July 
Backstage: 30th June 

How can I apply for a bursary? 

If you would like to apply for a bursary to help contribute towards your course and/or accommodation fees you will need to complete an application form. You can find this form in the link that was sent to you via email detailing your offer of a place. Please complete and return to the address advised in the email. The NYT Bursary Fund is reserved for those in most need of financial support.  Please note that the Fund is limited and depends on our success in raising funds each year.  We cannot guarantee that every application to the fund will be successful or the full amount applied for can be granted.  

We appreciate that the course fee and accommodation costs are significant, however every year young people do fundraise the full amount in order to attend a course. An NYT fundraising advice pack can be downloaded here. From sponsored walks to cake baking, fund raising can be a fun and rewarding way to raise money.  

Bursary deadline (all courses): 2nd June 

You’ll hear back from us on the 15th June.

Can I defer my place or request to change courses? 

Due to the very limited number of places we can offer each year, we are unable to defer any places or move you to another programme. 

How the reserve list works

Following our auditions around 600 acting applicants have been offered a place on a summer membership course. However, in previous years not everyone has been able to accept these places. Therefore, if an applicant declines we contact young people one at a time on the reserve list who may wish to take up the place. 

Due to the nature of how places are accepted and our aim to create a balanced company, we are not able to guarantee anyone on the reserve list will be offered a place or give an indication of how likely it is that those on the reserve list might be contacted. However, the deadline for young people to accept places on the course is 26th May, so if you haven’t heard from us by then it is less likely we’ll be in touch. That being said, if at any point before the courses begin a young person drops out of one of the courses we will offer their place to someone on the reserve list.

We appreciate that this will be disappointing and don’t expect anyone to hold off making other plans for the summer, but wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed meeting you at the audition and you came very close. 

If a place does become available, we will contact you via email.

Want to get in touch? 

Due to the large number of applicants we’re currently receiving a high level of phone and email traffic in the office. So, if you’ve got a quick general question it might be easier to tweet us @NYTofGB. 

We’re of course always happy to discuss any personal or sensitive issues on the phone and our offices are open between the hours of 10am and 6pm Monday to Friday. We’ll endeavour to get back to you as soon as we can and appreciate your patience.
