The following information is intended for applicants who have already been invited to an audition or interview, to help them prepare. Please note this is only valid for 2020-21.
We invite all applicants who show potential to an audition or interview. All interviews will take place online this year to ensure a safe experience. Interviews are two-way: they give you the opportunity to show your creative skills and ask any questions about the course; and they help us to assess further your potential to succeed in your chosen subject.
We'll invite you to an interview through the Falmouth Applicant Portal.
If, in order to attend an online interview, you have any individual requirements due to a long-term health condition, specific learning difficulty or disability, please contact the Accessibility Service as soon as possible.

This will enable us to discuss and put in place any support or adjustments you may require, for example, live online captioning, BSL interpreter, adjusted interview time/length, or information in a different format.
Audition & interview FAQs
You can find details of your interview in the Applicant Portal
You can find a list of alternative dates in the Applicant Portal if you're not able to make the one we've allocated to you. If you do need to reschedule we would advise you do this as soon as you can as dates fill up quickly.
Before allocating you an interview date, you will need to send us your online audition. Once we have received it, we will then book a time and date for your audition.
Please memorise and perform two contrasting monologues of your choice. The monologues must be no longer than 2 minutes each in length. Please upload video footage of your prepared monologues to Vimeo or YouTube and submit the link through the Applicant Portal
Think about your responses to questions such as:
1. Why do you want to study Acting at Falmouth?
2. Which actors/directors/companies have influenced you and why?

Remember, the interview is your chance to find out all you need to know to make an informed decision about your creative future.
