The 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 invite you to submit your portfolio, which our programme teams will review.

The outcome of your application will be updated on your UCAS account, so please keep a lookout for any updates. We aim to review your application within three weeks, although this may be slightly longer during peak times.

What should I include?

Your portfolio doesn’t haven’t to be long or full of finished work. It can be as simple as a collection of a few ideas, some work in progress or things you’ve experimented with. It doesn’t need to be work from your school or college; it could be something you’ve done at home or in your spare time.

The main thing to remember is that it should show your interest in the area you are studying!

We have put together this guide to help you to create your portfolio

Guide to creating your portfolio

For all programmes:

  • Show the range of work you have done and your interests, including relevant personal work and course work.
  • Don’t be too selective, and include materials that show your process and the final outcome, such as notes, plans, sketches, and schedules.
  • Present your work in logical, ordered fashion-related pieces of work or themes that can work well.
  • Make it clear where work has been done in collaboration with other people and what aspects of the work are your own.
  • Keep audio, video or film work to a maximum of 5 minutes long.

For design and making programmes:

  • Try to show work in various media, such as colour and texture studies, 2 & 3-dimensional work, photography, character drawing, sketchbooks containing visual notes and marks, found material, reference, and research.
  • Include pictures of anything you’ve previously designed, like any set, costume or lighting for a performance, or made sets, props or costumes.
