Covid-19 Update

We know things are still uncertain for many teachers, but we have resumed face-to-face exams for those who can facilitate it with the necessary guidelines in place. If face-to-face exams aren’t possible for you, don’t worry, our video exams are still an option.

Massive changes have taken place and huge adjustments have been required to open speech and drama schools. With that in mind, we have decided to extend the current syllabus until 31 August 2021, and to keep all fees at current levels.

The Irish Board of Speech & Drama is an independent speech, drama, communications and musical theatre examining body.

We’re inclusive, encouraging, professional, accessible, comprehensive, helpful and approachable.
