Overseas Applicants

Candidates located overseas may either: 

In either case, all candidates who are successful in this initial review stage must travel to the UK for a group workshop and interview. Regretfully, students cannot be admitted to this programme based on remote engagement or overseas audition alone; this is due to the complex range of skills that must be evidenced through the admissions process, including interactive tasks, group/collaborative work and improvisation. 


English Language Requirements

As the programme requires extensive reading and private study, as well as placements in professional workplaces, there should be evidence of intellectual stamina and a sound working knowledge of English. Please check the English language requirements for this course before application.

Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check and Health Requirements

All successful candidates will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service and health check. 

We require candidates to supply a full immunisation history post-offer. This information is required by some clinical placements in order to protect potentially vulnerable members of the community. They may also require evidence of Covid-19 vaccination status. The placement provider may request that you obtain additional vaccinations prior to undertaking any observation/work, if you are not deemed sufficiently protected.
