Circomedia often takes photos of our learners, potential learners, and community groups for use on our website and other promotional materials. Circomedia also stores these images for future use.
Circomedia have first aid and safeguarding policies in place to protect students and applicants whilst in our care. Please refer to our website.
However, it is your responsibility to consult your GP or other healthcare professional before participating in audition or committing to any Circomedia courses. This is especially relevant if you answered ‘yes’ to any of the conditions listed on the Audition Physical Readiness form.
Please do not start the audition or course or any specific class or activity if your doctor or other healthcare professional advised against it.
If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time whilst exercising at Circomedia you should stop immediately and notify the tutor or examiner during audition/class.
If you suffer any serious injury or are diagnosed with a physical/mental health condition during study, it may mean you need to stop studying at Circomedia. This could mean intercalating and beginning the course again or even withdrawing completely. Circomedia are not liable for any loss of money/funding incurred from having to restart the academic year or halt study.
If you are concerned in any way that any condition or diagnosis of yours may put you at risk of not being able to complete your studies then please consult a relevant medical professional prior to committing financially.
As injury can cause a financial loss, we strongly recommend all students seek medical advice before beginning the programme. Circomedia staff are not medical practitioners and offer no professional medical advice regarding the effect of our courses on a student’s health or wellbeing. No refunds will be given.
You should understand that when participating in any exercise or training programme, there is the possibility of physical injury. Also, most circus skills intrinsically have an element of risk. While Circomedia will take reasonable measures to reduce the risk, all possibility of injury cannot be eliminated. If you engage in such exercise or training while studying, you agree that you do so at your own risk, that you are voluntarily participating in these activities, that you assume all risk of injury to yourself, and agree to release and discharge Circomedia from any and all claims or causes of action, known or unknown.
Tell us a bit about yourself and what you’d like to get out of doing the course.
It is useful for Circomedia to know about any support or access needs that you may have. Please be as honest as you can when answering the questions below and give as much detail as possible. If you would like to talk to our Student Support Team then you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and Student Support will be on hand at the auditions to discuss any issues.
We encourage auditionees to use our equipment where possible. All external equipment will need to be checked on the day. The Circomedia team have the right to refuse the use of an applicant’s personal equipment if it’s deemed to be unsafe.
Jugglers can of course use their own manipulation equipment. Please note that we cannot permit the use of fire or stage flare.
Please complete the questionnaire below if you have been invited to attend an audition at Circomedia.
The information you provide is not used to discriminate and Circomedia will continue to welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and situations. Applicants selected for an audition will be judged entirely on merit.
Requesting this physical and mental health information is to help you decide whether to seek advice from a medical professional. The audition and the course are both very demanding and can cause strain on the body and mind. Circomedia does not wish to cause any harm or injury to applicants and therefore must assess applicants’ readiness to engage fully in the audition process.
