A Regent’s education provides you with a high level of personal attention, and this begins from the moment you apply to study with us. We want to understand who you are and what your skills and interests may be – we are interested in your potential, as well as your prior achievements. We review each application comprehensively and on its individual merit, considering all of your skills, interests and attributes.
If you are holding A levels, we would typically make you an offer at two A-Levels at Grades A-C.
We will also assess your application for proficiency in Mathematics, asking for a GCSE in this subject at grade A-C / 9-4 (or the international equivalent).
We receive applications each year from over 170 countries and are happy to assess all international qualifications. For example, if you are studying the International Baccalaureate, we would make an offer based on your successful completion of the IB Diploma; if you are studying an American High School Diploma, we would make an offer based on a minimum GPA of 2.8 plus two APs at grades 3,3.
In addition to meeting the above academic requirements, applicants for the BA (Hons) Acting for Stage & Screen degree are required to undertake and successfully pass an acting audition. Once you have submitted your application and supporting documents, and we have assessed your academic eligibility, successful candidates will be contacted with an invitation to attend audition along with a detailed audition pack.
Each candidate will be assigned a time for their individual audition and interview. The audition pack will include speeches from which you may select and further guidelines as to how to prepare for your audition. If you are unable to travel to London you will be required to produce and submit a DVD portfolio in replacement of your audition.
