How to apply
UK applicants should apply online via UCAS.
Applications for 2023 entry can be submitted from 6 September 2022 and the deadline is 25 January 2023 at 18:00 (UK time).
You will need the following codes to apply:
- UCAS course code: W491
- UCAS institution code: LIVIN

Applicants outside the UK can either apply via our online portal or via UCAS.
Applications open in early September and there is no deadline for international applicants. However, you should be aware that the majority of interview events take place in February and March and places begin to fill up after this time so applying by 25 January is advisable.

We are reviewing our audition and interview formats for 2023 entry. We will email all applicants for 2023 entry, with more information as soon as we have finalised our approach.
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if I miss the deadline for applying?
There is a high demand for places, so if you miss the deadline for your course, please contact our Admissions team at email@example.com. If you are an international student you are not bound by the UCAS deadline and we will be happy to consider your direct application after this date, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Can I defer entry?
We do not accept applications for deferred entry. However, there are exceptional circumstances when we will consider this, such as cases of compulsory military service for international students.
I have a learning difficulty or disability, will this affect my application?
How much does it cost to apply via UCAS?
The application fee for submitting an application through UCAS for 2022 entry was £26.50 if applying to more than one university course, or £22 for one university choice.
What are the course codes to use on my UCAS application?
Each degree programme has a code number and abbreviation. For our Applied Theatre & Community Drama degree these are W491, BA/ATCD. LIPA’s institution code is LIVIN. Our institution number is L48.
How many courses can I apply to?
On your UCAS form, you can apply for up to five choices. You are welcome to apply for more than one degree course here but this will count as another one of your five choices. If you are an international student you can apply directly to us for more than one course.
Do I have to pay an audition fee and is there any support with travel costs?
There is no audition fee for this course. We offer a travel grant scheme for UK applicants who come from areas where participation in Higher Education is traditionally low. This is based on postcode data, so all eligible candidates, who we wish to invite to an audition will be automatically offered the travel grant (if applicable).
