VISA - Tier 4 Sponsor Licence
London Studio Centre holds a UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) Tier 4 Sponsor’s licence in order to accept overseas students for the BA (Hons) Theatre Dance degree programme. LSC is therefore able to accept/audition any students who require a VISA to study in the UK. Further information regarding this visa can be found here.
For students from Australia, Canada, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Republic of Korea or Taiwan there are also alternative VISA options available: please click here for further details.
If overseas applicants can come to London for an audition then the normal application procedure will apply. If attendance at a London or overseas audition is difficult, an applicant may send an audition video in lieu of attending an audition along with a fully completed application form. Please see Video Application for further details.

English Language Requirements
Applicants whose first language is not English must complete the British Council IELTS academic test at 6.0 or above (with minimum 5.5 in any component) or show evidence of an equivalent level of achievement prior to the commencement of the course. Middlesex University also offers an Intensive Academic English course (Pre-Sessional) that ranges from 5-17 weeks, depending on your level of English. Successful completion of this course would normally meet English language entry requirements for London Studio Centre.
Previous Dance experience is a prerequisite when applying for the BA (Hons) Theatre Dance degree. A-level Dance is desirable but not essential. Applicants under 21 years old must have obtained a minimum of two A-level passes*, plus three different GCSE passes of grade 4 or higher (Grade C if awarded prior to 2017) including GCSE English (or equivalent qualifications), and have accumulated 96 UCAS points.
We realise applicants from the EU/Overseas do not take A-Levels, so please state on the application form the examinations you have completed or are due to complete e.g., Vitnemål, Apolytirion, Baccalaureate, listing the subjects you have studied (especially those in which you have specialised) and the grades you received or are predicted. For details regarding the entry requirements of a specific overseas examination please contact the Admissions Manager.
If an overseas student whose formal education has been assessed in a language other than English has been successful in gaining a place on the course we will require a legal translation of the certification/documentation into English.
