For 2022 entry, all first-round auditions will consist of our panel reviewing your audition tape online. We are hoping to offer call-backs and workshops in person and on campus, but this will depend on COVID guidelines at the time, and we will confirm this in the Autumn term. We will still offer an online option for those who would prefer not to or are unable to travel.

Application Process

Applications for our full-time undergraduate courses need to be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Applications are online at: Full details on this process can be obtained from the UCAS website in the how to apply section.

The UCAS code for Rose Bruford College is R51

Once we have received your application through UCAS, our Admissions Team will contact you and ask you to submit a digital audition as your first-round audition.

Advice on what to prepare for your audition can be found here: Rose Bruford College School of Performance frequently asked questions and audition tips – YouTube.

If your first-round audition is successful, you will be invited to attend the next round of the process. The number of rounds and the content of those sessions depends on which course you are auditioning for.
