Applications for full-time study on our BA (Hons) Degree programmes are made via UCAS – with the official UCAS application deadline for 2019/20 being 15 January 2019. If you wish to study part-time please apply via the online application forms available on each programme page.
We are a fully accredited partner institution of the Open University (OU). Our BA (Hons) and Masters awards, validated by the Open University, are a hallmark of academic quality that guarantees the international currency of your qualification.
We are also registered with the Office for Students. That means we meet their requirements for course quality, academic standards, student support, student protection and more. For more information see www.officeforstudents.org.uk/the-register.
For more information about studying on a programme validated by The Open University, please download their student guide here.
We recognise the value of a variety of qualifications and relevant experience and welcome applications from students who have followed less traditional routes. For further information visit the individual subject pages on this website or consult the Tariff Table on the UCAS website.
Portfolios/Showreels and interviews
Your UCAS application will tell us about your qualifications and previous experience, but studying the arts is about more than can be captured on forms. We need to find out about your creative potential, your abilities and idiosyncrasies, so we will invite you to attend an interview and to show a portfolio or showreel of your work. Treat it as a chance to tell us about your aspirations, and why you want to study at the college. It is also a good moment to find out what we can offer you. Download our guide to interviews and putting together your portfolio and/or showreel here.
Undergraduate Interview Slots
For the academic year 2019/20, we will be offering you the opportunity to attend an interview between 30 January and 16 February 2019. If you make your application by the UCAS deadline of 15 January 2019, you should expect to be interviewed during this time.
Whilst most of our interviews run on weekdays, there will be a limited amount of interviews available on Saturdays. From 20 February 2019, our interviews will run on Wednesday afternoons. If you are unable to attend any of our scheduled interview slots, please contact admissions on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage you to attend an interview at the college, so that you can see our facilities, meet our teaching and technical staff, and discuss any other queries you may have; however we appreciate this may not be possible, and are happy to interview you via an online platform (such as Google Meet or similar), with a digital portfolio.
If you are a European or overseas student interested in our Undergraduate programmes, you can submit your portfolio or showreel online and interview via an online platform. Please visit our International Students page or contact Admissions for further info on +441752 203474 and email@example.com.
