Some courses, such as those visual or performing arts require an interview or audition in addition to your online application.

After completing your online application, you'll book an interview or audition via our online booking system. In most cases, this is an informal discussion around your creative practice, technical skills, and what you hope to gain from study. It may include a presentation of a folio of work, demonstrating your ideas, skill, or ability.

For those courses that require an interview or audition, teaching staff will contact you afterwards with either an offer of a place in the course or provide further guidance and discuss alternative course options.
