Apply to RBS Courses

Create a myRBS Account

Course applications must be submitted through myRBS; please log in to your myRBS account or create a new account to begin the application process.

If you have previously applied for or taken an RBS course, applied for a scholarship (other than the RBS-Mellon Fellowship), or given a charitable donation to RBS, myRBS will link your existing record to your account.

As part of your course application, you will need to provide information about your education and employment history, and an emergency contact. A one-page personal statement (uploaded as a .doc or a .pdf file) is required for each course to which you apply. Your personal statement is the primary consideration for faculty when making admissions decisions.


Applications for summer 2020 courses will open in early January. To be considered in the first round of admissions decisions, please submit your application(s) by 17 February. After that date, we will continue to accept applications for courses until they have reached enrollment capacity; if the red “Apply Now” button is present on a Course Description page, we are still accepting applications for that course. If you have questions about course availability, contact You will receive an email confirmation for each application you submit. When an admission decision has been made, you will also be notified via email. Please keep track of your application status using myRBS.

Confirming Your Attendance

Shortly after faculty members’ admission decisions have been made, you will receive an email notifying you that your admission status has been changed. You must make a decision to accept or decline admission using your myRBS account. To secure your place in a course, RBS must receive a non-refundable $250 deposit within two weeks of receiving the notification of course admission. The remaining tuition is due at least one month before the course start date. Please remember that most RBS classes are limited to twelve students, and that many courses have waiting lists.
