Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance is London's International Drama School. Students from over 40 different countries study with us on our15 different vocational and professional degree courses, producing over 75 separate productions a year.

The College is located in Lamorbey Park, Southeast London, in beautiful, green grounds just 30 minutes by train from Trafalgar Square and the heart of London’s West End. The campus clusters around the Grade II listed Lamorbey House with modern, purpose-built facilities, including a 330-seat theatre-in-the-round, a 100-seat flexible Barn theatre, two black box studio theatres, spacious rehearsal rooms, recording studios, technical laboratories, design and production workshops, a unique drama library and well-equipped study areas. In 2015 the College will be opening ensuite student accommodations a short walk from campus.

Proud of its history of innovation that saw the Rose Bruford introducing the first university-level BA degree in Acting and the first BA in Lighting Design in the 1970s, Rose Bruford College continues to push the boundaries of training in performance and technical theatre, making it one of the world's leading drama conservatoires and one of the UK's largest in terms of student numbers and the variety of its professional training options. Preparing its acting graduates for a career on stage and screen and and technical graduates for behind the scenes across the wider entertainment industries--with six separate acting and performance options at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, the largest portfolio of technical theatre and management undergraduate programmes and two online undergraduate degrees--we train some of the best talents making theatre today around the world.

The College and its teaching staff foster  the imagination, talents and creativity of our students, preparing them for rewarding and satisfying careers in challenging, exciting and well-paying industries.Our job is to train but also to help find employment for all our graduates.

Our undergraduate and taught postgraduate degrees are currently validated by the University of Manchester, a leading Russell Group university. Our vocational courses are accredited by Drama UK.

Throughout 2015-16 we will be working to acquire Taught Degree Awarding Powers that, if successful, will enable the College to award its own Rose Bruford College degrees rather than degrees validated by another university. So our distinction as a conservatoire and as a university sector institution will be strengthened even further.
