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) 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 a member of staff in the Admissions Department ([email protected]) or contact the Higher Education Administration & Student Support Manager – [email protected]
