EU & International Students
EU & International Students
Fourth Monkey are a diverse school who have welcomed students from all over the world supporting them throughout their vocational training journey with us creating industry ready professional actors and theatre makers.
Following Britain’s withdrawal from the EU, freedom of movement between the UK and the EU unfortunately ended on 31 December 2020. EU citizens may now require a visa for studying in the UK. This does not apply to Irish nationals, or anyone who benefits from Citizens’ Rights under the EU Withdrawal Agreement.
If you have already completed an application under the EU Settlement Scheme and have confirmed settled or pre-settled status, you do not require a visa. Prior to formal offer for a place to study you will be required to confirm settled or pre-settled status.
If you do not have confirmed settled or pre-settled status, you can apply before 30 June 2021 under the EU Settlement Scheme and are eligible for the scheme if you lived in the UK or arrived before the end of the transition period.
We regret that this course is not currently available to EU or International applicants who would require a Student Route Visa.
English Language Requirements
Applicants should have excellent conversational English and be able to understand a variety of texts. As with UK applicants, our audition panel will be assessing how you deliver your speeches and interact with the panel at interview.
If English is not your first language you will need to meet the same standard expected of UK applicants, which is equivalent to the IELTS Academic 6.0 overall score, with at least 5.5 in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.
A full list of English Language tests can be found on our awarding partner Falmouth University’s website: https://www.falmouth.ac.uk/study/international/english-language-requirements.
Fees & Funding
As part of our commitment to Accessibility, Fourth Monkey do not charge increased tuition fees to International Students.
The UK government announced that EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals will no longer be eligible for financial support from Student Finance England for courses starting in the 2021-22 academic year. Please see www.gov.uk for more details.
We recommend contacting the Department of Education in your home country for details of any government funding or scholarships which may be available to you for overseas study.
Resources for International Students
The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) is a helpful resource to find information and advice for international students, including Brexit, immigration, funding, fees and wellbeing.
