Auditions and interviews

If you're invited to an online audition or interview, we aim to give you a sense of what it's like to be a student here and how we teach. This helps you to decide whether we are a good fit for you.

We'll send you guidelines a month beforehand to help you prepare. We understand that this can be a demanding time so you should read the guidelines carefully to make sure you're as comfortable as possible with this part of our application process. You can also find the guidelines on each of the course pages.

There is no audition fee this year because the events are virtual.

After your audition/interview

We will contact you to inform you about our decision. For degree courses, this will be confirmed by UCAS. You can follow the progress of your application on the UCAS website. For Foundation Certificates and postgraduate courses, we will contact you directly.

There are four possible outcomes following an audition/interview for any of our courses:

  • An unconditional offer of a place
  • A conditional offer based on exam results or further assessed work
  • An offer of a place on a different course. For example, if you applied for a degree course, we may offer you a place on a related Foundation Certificate course or a four-year course which includes a Foundation Year
  • A notification that your application has been unsuccessful

Our decision will be final. Unfortunately, we do not supply feedback to unsuccessful candidates. In many cases, a lack of success is due to the level of competition for places, rather than a specific personal weakness.
