Short course admissions 

All the key information to know before applying to one of our short courses. 

No formal qualifications are required to study our short courses. We welcome and encourage applications from students with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. 

Our Applicant Advisors know our courses and the creative industries inside out. They can advise on which course will best match your skillset, expectations and career aspirations. We can also arrange a chat with one of our tutors.  

We highly encourage everyone to attend a taster session (or several!) to get a better idea of the course and make sure it’s suited to you.

To study a short course, you must: 

  • Be over 18 

  • Have a good understanding of written and spoken English ideally to International English Language Testing System (IELTS) level 6.0 

  • Feel comfortable using a computer. 

It's nice and easy – just contact our Admissions Team on or +44 (0)203 441 1303. Our evening courses can also be purchased directly from our website – via the Buy Now button on each course page.

Spaces are limited and booked on a first come first served basis. We advise you to book in advance, ideally three months ahead, to make sure you save your spot on the course.
