Policies and Procedures

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

Students are reminded that their degree courses are validated by the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) and as a result they are UWE registered students. As BOVTS is a founding member of the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama (CDD) students are also CDD registered students.

ⓘ 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 the policies and procedures are subject to review. Course summaries will be updated annually and new applicants should refer to the course summary for their course in the year of entry. 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.

I find it immensely satisfying passing on the baton and continuing the culture of generosity of the many people who taught me. It’s a privilege and pleasure to nurture and teach so many talented young people and see them flourish in their career. Cathy Stewart, Head of Scenic Art
