If your application is approved then you will be invited to send us a virtual audition. This will include a video of you performing an audition piece, answering some questions, and a written task.

BTEC Virtual Auditions 2021/22

For applicants looking to start in September 2021 we will be holding virtual auditions. Offers will be made once we have reviewed all submissions.

Audition pieces should be between two and three minutes and can be whatever you want – circus, dance, a monologue – whatever best shows off your performance skills. Audition pieces are only watched by members of staff.

Applications for the BTEC course are made directly on our website here.

Foundation Degree / Vocational Auditions 2021/22

Due to the current requirements for social distancing, we are holding Virtual Auditions.

In the spirit of our face-to-face audition, we want to create a comfortable space that will give you the opportunity to show us who you are and what you do, to the best of your ability within current restrictions. Admissions staff will be sending the Virtual Audition pack to all invited candidates. We hope you enjoy the challenge.

We have been using a similar system for many years for applicants who are unable to attend auditions in person, for example, because they would have to travel from overseas. It does not have a negative impact on the outcome.

Audition Fees

There is a small charge for the FDA / Vocational Virtual audition. If you have been invited to audition then you can pay here. If you have not yet been asked to audition then please don’t make any payments.

Please note the BTEC audition is free.

Circomedia offers a limited number of audition fee waivers for UK applicants who come from areas where participation in Higher Education is traditionally low. This is based on postcode data and then prioritised based on further criteria below.

  2. You are applying to an undergraduate programme
  3. You have no previous degree qualifications
  4. You have an annual household income of less than £25,000 (pre tax)
