Admissions Process

1 – Email/Telephone enquiry

First contact with Inchbald is usually made through an email or telephone enquiry from a potential student. This will initially be dealt with by the Admissions Secretary or the School Secretary. You will be asked a number of questions, contact details, which courses you are considering, past educational and professional life, if relevant, and in turn, you will be appraised of the basic information about the content and duration of courses which may be relevant.

Information and application paperwork will be emailed to prospective students if they wish at this stage, however a meeting or Skype call will be arranged to further discuss the application.

2 – Interview With Course Director

The next stage is an interview or informal talk with the Course Director, (in person or via Skype), this meeting allows for a full discussion of the content, processes and outcomes of a particular course, applicants can ask their questions in turn and show relevant work/portfolios if they have them. This meeting usually lasts around an hour.

Potential students are encouraged to reflect on the details and conclusions of this meeting and if they wish to continue, fill in a full application form, providing references, educational certificates and transcripts of marks and/or portfolio if relevant.

3 – Application Form

Once an application has been received, (the form must be accompanied by the registration fee) the references and details will be checked. A letter will be sent out informing the applicant if they are being offered a place. To confirm a place a written acceptance accompanied by a deposit must be sent to the School.
