What Qualities Do I Need?

We welcome students with a wide range of skills and backgrounds, and this creates an environment where our students are encouraged to respect and appreciate differences. The course is very hard work and is likely to be very different to what you have experienced so far in your school life. Students will need to commit wholly to a full timetable, long hours and expect a high degree of intensity within the training. As a department, we are at the forefront of exploring new writing and will expect you to be open minded in your response to challenging material and repertoire which may push boundaries. We are looking for potential in all three areas of the performing arts and a ‘can do’ attitude.
