Applications for the Ufton Drama Summer School are generally made available from August the year before the start of the next course. We have now filled our places for the 2019 summer school but we are now taking applications for our 2020 Brecht and Epic Theatre. Applications for the 2020 course should be submitted by the end of January 2020.
It is important that you complete your application fully and pay particular attention to your personal statement (see below).
The staff meet shortly after the applications deadline to discuss the students who have applied and make a formal decision on those applications that have been successful.
Applicants are advised whether they have been successful or not by the second week of February. Acceptance on the course is confirmed via payment of a non-refundable deposit. You can find more information about the payment process here.
Advice on Applying for Summer School
Some years can be more competitive than others and the staff are face with a difficult task at deciding on which students should be invited to attend the course. In order to give yourself the best chance of an application being accepted we would recommend that your personal statement includes:
- Full details of your current education experience and studies including whether you have completed applicable GCSEs, A-Levels or a degree subject.
- Information about any relevant skills of experience.
- A concise but well-considered statement of why the staff should consider you for a place on the summer school. It is useful for us to know what your expectations are for the course as well as how you found out about us but you should pay particular attention to selling your talents, personality and charm. Feel free to be as expressive and creative as you like but do make sure we get to know about YOU.
- Once your application has been received, you will be contacted for a photograph. Make sure you have a good one ready to go as an application will not be considered without one.
