Welcome to Rose Bruford College.
Our goal is to inspire, excite and train you as a creative artist and practitioner who can use reflective practice and research, along with the world-class teaching we provide, as tools to become an independent thinker and a fulfilled and successful working professional.
Our teaching, learning and training ethos is based on artistry, collaboration, community, discovery, diversity, employability, independence, and professionalism. Students and staff work in collaboration across our campuses to make and produce over 75 shows a year.
Some productions are shown in London, and some are taken on tour in the UK and abroad. Many of our students incorporate an international experience into their studies with us. Out of this lively atmosphere has come generations of performers, designers, technicians and companies who are changing the face of global theatre and live events.
The best way to learn more about us is to come along for an Open Day or to see one of our shows in action. We perform seasons of work throughout the year where you can see first-hand the work of our talented design, technical and performance students.
Our values and mission.
Our mission is to achieve social and cultural impact by delivering the highest quality vocational training and education. Our teaching covers a wide, innovative spectrum of subjects and delivers proactive graduates who are creative, empowered and employable.
Our behaviour is guided and determined by our core values of:
We aspire to our students’ highest achievements and the best possible working environment for our staff. The whole College community – women, men and non-binary people, younger and older, from different social and ethnic backgrounds, a variety of faiths, cultures and languages, all sexualities, trans and cisgendered, disabled and non-disabled – we are all treated with the same respect and entitled to the same support and chances to succeed.
We champion diversity because a rich mix of people makes our College a more productive and creative place to study and work, and we champion equality because it is the right thing to do.
