Like many conservatoires the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland will be using recordings and online interviews as part of their audition process this year.

As well as remembering all the work you have put into preparing your monologues, you have your nerves to cope with.

  • Experienced taking part in a mock audition and interview with an experienced panel
