If you are applying for the full time course - once you have attended a workshop and interview - if you have met the criteria for study you will either be offered a conditional or unconditional place (or if we can't offer a place, we will offer advice on alternatives, or may invite you to re-audition), or you maybe placed on a waiting list. You have 14 days* from receiving an offer to accept a place - if you miss this deadline we will offer your place to the next person on the waiting list.
*If you are re-auditioning in August during our three week summer school show experience (subject to spaces being available) we will make any decision at the end of the first week, and will require acceptance or refusal within 5 working days. If you are unable to accept, the place will be offered to another performer. If places are still available in September, you will have the chance of a second offer, subject to a waiting list.
