Application forms for forthcoming RBS courses are available online. All applications are acknowledged upon receipt. Admission to RBS courses is on a rolling basis. Unless noted otherwise, early admit decisions for each course are made three months before the course begins. RBS accepts applications until the week in which the course runs.
Frequency of Course Offerings
Not all of the courses listed in the RBS Course Bulletin will be offered this year. Some courses are offered in alternate years, and on occasion RBS faculty members may wish to take an informal sabbatical, and their courses may disappear from the Schedule for a year or two as the result.
In general, however, all RBS courses not offered annually are on a two-year cycle, and courses missing from the Schedule this year may be expected with some (though not complete) confidence to reappear in the Schedule next year; see the summary of forthcoming courses for the current state of play.
