Drama Studio London (DSL), based in Ealing, London, United Kingdom, is drama school. It is a founding member of the Federation of Drama Schools[1], accredited by the CDET[2], validated by Trinity College London[3] and inspected by Ofsted.

The school was founded in 1966 by Peter Layton[4] out of the need for a new, more realistic approach to actor training that took account of the professional requirements and demands of the theatre for which the students were being prepared.

DSL offers both a 1 and 2[5] Year Diploma in Professional Acting as well as a BA (Hons) in Professional Acting validated by De Montfort University. Students on the 1 & 2 Year Diplomas can top up to a degree with Middlesex University.[6] There are also short and part time courses[7] to choose from.

In 1995, Friends of DSL, under the Presidency of Dame Judi Dench[8], was established in order to help provide scholarships for future students.
