The Bridge believes a mix of social and cultural backgrounds enriches the training that students receive and the theatre itself. We’ve trained students from across the world who have gone on to work in the industry both here in the UK and internationally.

Since 1 January 2021, UK government rules changed and citizens from the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland are only able to visit/study for up to six months without the need for entry clearance.

The Bridge does not currently hold a Tier 4 Sponsorship licence so would be unable to issue the documentation required for international students to apply for a visa however we welcome applications from people who have the right to work and study in the UK.

Irish citizens are eligible to apply for our courses and do not require a visa to study or work in the UK.

We’re keeping an eye on visa regulations. Should the situation change, we’ll let you know through social media and our website.
