HOW TO APPLY – IPTAS

HOW TO APPLY

Applications for the course are now being accepted and are dealt with on a first come, first served basis. The Personal Statement is an important part of the application and should be completed with care. Class sizes are limited and enrolment is closed when the class is full. You should submit your application as soon as possible as this puts you at an advantage.

An early acceptance can help you in many ways: you can plan your year with reference to class weekends, you can locate and purchase the texts in good time and organise uniform and a plinth required for home practice.

You must be 18 or over to apply.
