FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will I be asked to act during the course?
No. Our trainers apply the skills of an actor to a business context. The focus is on the use of the body, breath and voice, not on acting a part. The course focuses on how you would like to come across, not on adopting someone else’s habits and mannerisms.

Do I need an account with Eventbrite to book online?
Yes. When you book a place on a course you will need to set-up an Eventbrite account if you don’t already have one. This is easy to do and explained on the site.

Do I have to pay online through Eventbrite?
No, you do not have to pay online. If you would rather pay by BACS or by cheque choose this option when booking and we will send you an invoice via email. If you would prefer to ring us and give your card details over the phone that is also ok. Please select the pay by BACS option and ring Katie Calvert on 0207 908 4779 when you are ready to pay.

The course I want to go on is full. How do I join the waiting list?
To join the waiting list, select the date that you would like to attend and then click ‘tickets’. You will see the option to ‘join waitlist’, click the link and complete your details. You will be automatically informed if a place becomes available.

Can I transfer my booking to someone else?
Yes, anyone can take your place on the course. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to confirm the new name.

Can I reschedule my course place to a different date?
Please be aware that we do have strict terms and conditions. We try to be flexible where we can but once you’ve received your registration confirmation we assume that you will attend. This isn’t because we’re overly officious or unreasonable but because our small group sizes make course places sought after and late cancellation results in RADA losing money. Rescheduling your place:
• is allowed free of charge up to 14 days before the course.
• between 7-14 day before the course there is a £100 + VAT administrative charge for switching dates.
• rescheduling within 7 days of the course rescheduling incurs the full course cost.

Can I cancel my place and still receive a refund?
Please be aware that we do have strict terms and conditions. We try to be flexible where we can but once you’ve received your registration confirmation we assume that you will attend. This isn’t because we’re overly officious or unreasonable but because our small group sizes make course places sought after and late cancellation results in RADA losing money. If you cancel:
• between 14 and 21 days prior to a course you will be liable for 20% of the course fee.
• between 7-14 days 50% of the course fee.
