Pre-Professional Entry requirements

Bird College welcomes applications from all sections of the community regardless of ethnicity, religion or gender. The College is committed to meeting the requirements of learners with special educational needs.

This course is for Candidates who are 16+ at the start of the course.
Applicants are normally expected to have received some prior dance training. All candidates must successfully pass the College Audition for this programme. This is a carefully conceived assessment and is conducted by senior teachers to assess potential skills in dance, singing and drama, as well as suitability for a career in the theatre profession. Applicants that have auditioned for the BA (Hons) Degree or the National Diploma will not be required to have an additional audition for the pre vocational course and be offered a place on this course based on their audition.

Through individual interview, personal qualities such as motivation, communication and flexibility are assessed and career aspirations are discussed. Candidates are notified of the audition date and procedure upon receipt of the completed application form, fee and enclosures and after the advertised closing date.
