Warning: Kogan Academy of Dramatic Arts watch

    • Thread Starter

    This is just a post to warn people that are contemplating attending the school.

    It was the worst experience of my life. Wouldn't give them 1 star if I could. I had a year of being miserable, lost my confidence, was the loneliest I've ever been not to mention all my financial struggles which this school couldn't seem to take into consideration. If it doesn't work around them or in their favour then it won't work at all. Not worth the £11,000 at all. Please don't fall for their false promises on their website, the only thing they offer is pure manipulation and disappointments. If you want to know the theory, read the book and save yourself the time and money.

    They aren't an accredited drama school anymore so you won't get a BA or funding for them. This is because they are in a financial mess with no one qualified enough to run a drama school and also due to lack of students. In my year alone, 20 students started and by the 2nd year only 6 remained. It's been like this for years, I only wish I knew before I joined.

    When Sam Kogan was alive and teaching the school might have made sense and was probably a lot better then but now its falling apart and Sam's theory and memory is being lost in the cracks. I just wanted to learn about acting but I've only been left with "background noise" and the feeling that I'll never be good enough (not just in acting but as a person in general). But at least I'm no longer scared of them.

    Anyone else had a similar experience?
Do you think parents should charge rent?
