Academic Transfers

Transferring between Royal Academy of Dance Programmes

The Royal Academy of Dance allows transfers, after the completion of a level of study, from its BA (Hons) Ballet Education programme (FHEQ Levels 4 and 5) into subsequent levels of the BA (Hons) Dance Education programme, subject to availability of places on the programme.  Following discussion with the relevant Programme Managers, transfers are subject to approval by the Dean.  Students holding a Student Visa for the BA (Hons) Ballet Education requesting transfer to the BA (Hons) Dance Education will have their Student Visa revoked and they will be required to leave the UK unless they secure other rights to remain.  Visas are not offered by the Royal Academy of Dance for distance-learning programmes of study.

Should a student transfer their registration from one programme of study to another then they must obtain RAD RTS via the method applicable for their new programme of study.

Those who transfer from BA (Hons) Ballet Education Level 5 into BA (Hons) Dance Education Level 6 therefore lose eligibility to gain RAD RTS.

Transferring onto a Royal Academy of Dance Programme from another institution

The Royal Academy of Dance will consider on a case-by-case basis whether students from other higher education providers would be eligible to transfer onto a Faculty of Education programme.  Students wishing to transfer to a Royal Academy of Dance programme should make application through UCAS.  Applicants may be required to attend an audition and/or an interview as part of the admissions process.  The application to transfer should normally be made before the start of the academic year in which the student will join the new programme.  Where a student is applying to enter a programme with Advanced Standing, they must complete an Accreditation of Prior Learning Application form.  The Royal Academy of Dance Accreditation of Prior Learning Policy can be found here:

The form should be accompanied by an academic transcript and the specification for the programme completed at the current institution.

For further information please email:

Transferring to another institution from the Royal Academy of Dance

If a student decides that their current programme of study at the Royal Academy of Dance is not meeting their needs, they will be invited to discuss their options with their Programme Manager who will be able to offer practical advice and support.  Where a student decides to transfer to another institution, they should apply to the new institution in accordance with its admissions and credit transfer procedures and complete a Royal Academy of Dance withdrawal form.  Registry will be able to provide advice on financial implications and any supporting documents required for the transfer.

Students transferring from the Royal Academy of Dance to another provider will be given a transcript of achievement, if applicable, and they may request a reference from the Faculty of Education in accordance with its Principles and Guidelines for writing Student References (available to all registered students on the Virtual Learning Environment).
