*The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) is one of the oldest drama schools in the United Kingdom.  Founded in 1861, it quickly established itself as a centre of excellence in performance training.  LAMDA has provided theatre and the world of film and television with generation upon generation of first-class actors and expertly-trained stage managers across the world.

LAMDA began offering speech examinations to the public in the 1880s.  Since then, these examinations have been refined and developed into a comprehensive system of performance evaluation by experts in education, acting and communication. In addition to being the UK’s largest statutory speech and drama awarding body, LAMDA Examinations has a reputation for excellence across the globe.

LAMDA examinations are designed to equip candidates, whatever their age or aspirations, with a range of skills that will serve them throughout life. 

LAMDA examinations are accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA). This places them within the National Qualifications Framework (NQF), for comparison to other qualifications.

A number of LAMDA Examinations’ QCA-Accredited higher level qualifications have been included in the UCAS Tariff.
