1.3 The College's distinctiveness

Programmes of study at Rose Bruford College aim to:

  1. develop students as ‘reflective practitioners’, professionals with the practical skills and knowledge required to fulfil their role who understand, reflect on, interrogate and continually develop their own practice and the contexts in which they are operating;

  2. prepare graduates for successful and satisfying careers as innovative and enterprising practitioners, who can challenge existing paradigms as well as replicate them

  3. centre on learning through enquiry;

  4. focus on the practices of theatre and performance making;

  5. be founded on a conception of performance-making of all kinds as a collaborative, multidisciplinary activity

  6. build on a close engagement with, and involvement of, the industry

  7. proactively include an international perspective and context.

  8. enable students to recognise the ethical dimensions of their practice, including areas of the environment and sustainability.

Additionally Masters programmes aim to:

  1. develop research-led or research-informed practitioners with experiential practice-based or practice-focused learning founded on a conception of performance-making of all kinds as a collaborative, multidisciplinary activity
  2. prepare students for further study at doctoral level.

Individual programmes may have other distinctive features and qualities, but all taught programmes will demonstrate the above characteristics, as well as being in alignment with the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and relevant chapters of the UK Quality Code for Higher Education and QAA subject benchmark statements.
