Entry criteria detail typical offers but USW considers all applications on an individual basis which means that we could make offers based on qualifications, personal profile and experience. Combinations of qualifications are acceptable and other qualifications not listed may also be acceptable.
You will be asked to take part in an hour-long group workshop, which will guide you through a range of performance activities including the creation and devising of work and text-based activity. Please bring a passport sized photograph of yourself so the admissions tutors are able to clearly identify all participants.
Following this you will have a 10-minute individual interview. Please bring a portfolio of work that you have done/participated in over the last two years up to the present. You may also include any future work you are expecting to do. This can be in the form of a DVD, CD, links to work online and/or hard copies in a binder. You do not need to prepare anything for the workshop but you are advised to wear, or bring with you, clothing which is suitable for practical work.
