You will find our Admissions Policy for 2012 entry here - it covers our Higher Education programmes.
Our aim is to provide the best teaching and learning for people who want to pursue a lasting career in the arts and entertainment economy. We are committed to admitting applicants offering a range of qualifications and experience.
We are also committed to our Widening Participation strategy and select suitable, talented applicants from all backgrounds, who demonstrate their potential both to complete an HE course of study and to benefit from the course that they have applied for.
We are committed to a fair and transparent admissions system, considering all applicants on their individual merits.
There will be no discrimination against applicants meeting the minimum standards for entry on the grounds of gender, race, ethnic or national origin, marital or civil partnership status, family responsibility, disability, religion or beliefs, sexual orientation, social background or age. We will make reasonable adjustments for people with access needs. Practices and procedures will be modified to ensure that we are up to date with current legislation and recommendations of 'best practice' in all areas of admissions.
We recognise that an applicant’s suitability for a course may be demonstrated in many ways both vocationally and otherwise, and we are flexible in our assessment of the suitability of the individual. We recognise that academic ability and potential alone may not provide us with a complete picture of an applicant’s suitability and as such, we value experience and welcome applications from mature students who are able to demonstrate their motivation and ability in other ways. This may include interviews and auditions.
Due to the high volume of applications received, we are not able to interview or audition every applicant, but for almost all courses, places are offered only after an interview or audition has taken place.
All applications for full-time undergraduate degree courses should be submitted via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). For some of our undergraduate courses, applicants are also required to complete one of our own LIPA application forms in addition to the UCAS form, this is stated in our prospectus and on this website. For our LIPA Foundation Certificate courses, applicants apply directly to us using the relevant application form.
