Policies and Procedures

This page includes a list of policies and procedures that apply to current Bristol Old Vic Theatre School (BOVTS) students.

BOVTS degree courses are validated by the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) meaning students are UWE registered students and UWE policies apply, except where there is a separate BOVTS policy.

ⓘ If you cannot find the policy you are looking for below, please contact either the Admissions Department ([email protected]) or the Higher Education Administration & Student Support Manager ([email protected]).

Students should note that these policies and procedures are subject to review. Any changes to course-related documentation will be communicated to students in advance and, where significant, will only be implemented after consultation with affected students.

Information for new and returning students – autumn 2022

An update on the organisational transition from the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama to the University of the West of England is available to read (PDF, 120 Kb).

As a result of these arrangements, all BOVTS students will be subject only to UWE Bristol terms and conditions.

Working relationships made at BOVTS often extend beyond the course, design commission rates are excellent, it’s fantastic to see the graduates embracing successful and rewarding careers as Performance Designers in a professional environment. Angela Davies, Head of Performance Design
