Commitment to Students

Our main commitment as a higher education institution is to our students. Vocational training is the starting point and at the very heart of what we do at Rose Bruford College.  All of the programmes are predicated on contemporary industry practice and partnership with the profession. And although based in UK, our work is rooted in an international perspective and can be delivered with partners from across the globe.

With some 650 undergraduates and another 200 online, international and postgraduate students, Rose Bruford College is committed to giving each and every individual unqualified student support, and a quality training, teaching and learning experience.  Our commitment as a university-sector drama school is to continually develop and lead our sector through education and training that is student centred and industry focused. We will offer our graduates the best possible preparation for successful and satisfying careers as innovative and enterprising practitioners.
