Kogan Academy of Dramatic ArtsKogan Academy of Dramatic Arts

The Kogan Academy of Dramatic Arts (KADA) is a leading London conservatoire offering exceptional training for actors and directors.  They are the only established drama school with a comprehensive acting methodology – The Science of Acting – and an integrated directing course. 

The Academy's conservatoire is unique in having a trade-mark technique, developed by their founder Sam Kogan, renowned Russian director, acting teacher and author of the book ‘The Science of Acting’.

What also makes KADA stand out from other drama schools is that their acting courses have an optional directing module course pathway which students can undertake whilst training at KADA.

This directing course pathway is unique in the country; it follows long-standing Russian director training strategies that famously combine tradition and innovation.

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Academy, they are re-launching their 3 year, full-time Diploma course based on the highly successful course designed by their founder, Sam Kogan, and which has been taught at the Academy for over twenty years.

The evening option (two evenings a week and all day Saturday) is also available and covers the same core content as the full-time course, however allowing its students to combine study with work.

“The Science of Acting has given me an ability to create my characters with an individuality and uniqueness.” - Sara-Marie Maltha (Rosa Lebech ‘Forbrydelsen’/The Killing)

They have specific audition dates in Berlin and Stockholm:

  • Berlin 7th August 2017 at Berlin Union-Film Studios
  • Stockholm 24th/25th Aug 2017 at FILMHUSET (Swedish Film Inst)
