“An online (remote) audition worked very well for me. I had the support of people who had been through such a process and helped me make the videos for what was asked of me. I think one of the biggest reasons that NSCD started to appeal to me was because of staff support. The whole thing was very new and different for me so I was in touch with Kate Kramers (Admissions Manager) over e-mails and over phone conversations which helped a lot.
I was planning to fly to Leeds for the auditions. I am so glad that my teachers guided me to do the video audition. I guess for me personally money was a big consideration and I think it was really cheap as compared to flying here and visa costs and everything else. I got a call from Janet Smith (Artistic Director and Principal) and I think that was pretty chilled. It was just a talk and not an interview as such. She made sure I was very comfortable and she was very friendly.”
The UK has become one of the top destinations to study around the world. It is now the second most popular destination for international students.
