Clearing vacancies in Production Arts

UCAS Clearing is a service that allows you to apply to foundation or undergraduate degree courses that still have places available for a September start.

We have a small number of clearing vacancies on our BA Production Arts and FdA Production Arts courses for September 2020 entry.

Please note that we do not have any vacancies available for BA Professional Acting or FdA Costume for Theatre, TV & Film.

How do I apply for Production Arts through Clearing?

If you have read the course description for BA Production Arts or FdA Production Arts and would like to be considered:

• Contact our admissions team by calling +44 (0)117 973 3535. Have your UCAS ID number to hand.
• If you are eligible to apply and we have vacancies remaining on the Production Arts course, the admissions team will transfer you to a member of the Production Arts staff.
• At BOVTS, our offers are not dependent on academic grades, so to assess your suitability, our staff will request a phone interview to discuss your interest in the course or, if you are local, invite you to the School.

• If you are successful, we’ll make you an informal offer. Our admissions team will explain how to add the School as a clearing choice within UCAS Track.
• Once your application is processed, your place will be confirmed in UCAS Track.

Further information is available on our Clearing FAQs or by contacting admissions .
