Applications for full-time study on our BA (Hons) Degree programmes are made via UCAS – with the official UCAS application deadline for 2018/19 being 15 January 2018. 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.
For more information about studying on a programme validated by The Open University, please download their student guide below or 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 Weeks
For the academic year 2018/19, we will be holding three main interview weeks for Undergraduate applications; one in December, one in January and one in February. If you make your application by the UCAS deadline of 15 January 2018, you should expect to be invited to an interview during one of these weeks.
If you are unable to attend your interview, please reply to your invitation to let us know, and we will reschedule the interview to a later date. Whilst most of our interviews run on weekdays, there will be a limited amount of interviews available on the mornings of our Saturday Open Days. From 19 February 2018, our interviews will run on Wednesday afternoons.
Undergraduate Interview Dates:
- From week commencing 19 February 2018 onwards, interviews will be available every Wednesday afternoon.
If you are a European or overseas student interested in our Undergraduate programmes, we might ask you to submit your portfolio or showreel online or by post rather than attend an interview.
