Bird College

Posted on July 3, 2017

Bird College is committed to enabling young performers identify, and develop their individual skills. The college provides a first class educational experience, attracting a diverse, international student body to study on exceptional programmes, validated by leading educational institutions.

The College’s location, on the south-east edge of London, is within easy reach of the city centre, providing a wealth of opportunities for research, cultural activities and performance experience. Students train on a single-site campus which provides a superb environment for study, including a refectory and an innovative theatre space which enables the bringing together of dance, music and theatre performance.

Bird College has an exceptional faculty with a unique breadth of experience in the theatre industry. That experience is combined with excellent professional qualifications and students regularly achieve a 100% pass rate. Students are also taught by a team of visiting lecturers and guest choreographers, many of whom are ex-students of Bird College, who have gained international reputations in their specialist field.

Bird College offers all applicants an audition and aims to recruit the best possible students, assessed solely on the basis of talent and aptitude. Applications are welcome from all candidates that aspire to meet Bird College’s standards.
