Admissions Policy

OCA is an open-access provider; this means that with some exceptions there are no entry requirements for our courses

Our Admissions Policy sets out how admissions and enrolment works. This includes any restrictions that apply; we apply open-access to our courses, with exceptions to this for international students, for BA (Hons) Music, and for Postgraduate courses. It also covers recognition of prior learning, and how you can apply for that if you have previously studied a comparable course or equitable industry experience.
