Applications

Applications for 2020 Entry

Applications are still live, however we recommend making one as soon as possible.

At this late stage audition spaces are in short supply so there is unlikely to be much flexibility in rescheduling your appointment. If you are unable to make the date please email us – we can also give you the option of making a video audition.

Please register and you will receive an activation email (check your junk or spam folder if you do not receive it immediately).  Audition dates are listed under Key Dates.

We apologise for the continued delay in the publication of our UCAS codes. The BA (Hons) Degree will be running next year and we urge you to make an online application for an audition without delay if you have not already done so.

The UCAS codes will be published very soon at which point you will need to apply for the Degree programme via UCAS.

We are able to confirm that UCAS applications for the Degree will be guaranteed equal consideration (as though you had applied before 15th January) until at least 31st March.

If you have yet to be seen for an audition or are in receipt of an offer from us at that time we can provide you with further guidance.
