Drama Admission Workshop:
If you are successful in your application, you will be asked to attend a Drama Admission Workshop. These workshops take place on our Offer-holder Visit Days, when you will also be able to meet academic staff and students in the Department and familiarise yourself with our teaching and practice spaces.
Your offer will be conditional on your satisfactory participation in the Drama Admission Workshop, as well as achieving the grade requirements set out in your official offer confirmation. If your performance is particularly strong during your Drama Admission Workshop then you could receive a one-grade reduction, meaning that your offer becomes ABB, instead of AAB, or equivalent.
We appreciate visitng campus for the Drama Admission Workshop might not be feasible for those domiciled outside of the UK, therefore it is possible to submit a video recording of a monologue and a short performance analysis instead.
We welcome applications from international students and invite you to join our vibrant community of over 4500 international students who represent 150 different countries. We accept a range of qualifications, our country pages show you what qualifications we accept from your country.
Depending on your chosen course of study, you may also be interested in one of our foundation pathways, which offer specially structured programmes for international students whose qualifications are not accepted for direct entry to UK universities. Further details can be found on Birmingham International Academy web pages.
