In 1992 Mountview became the first organisation in Europe to provide a vocational three-year training in musical theatre. We remain one of the world’s leading musical theatre trainers and over 70% of long-running West End musicals feature Mountview alumni.
In 1997 our three-year degree-level programmes were validated by University of East Anglia. We remain the University’s longest-standing partner organisations.
Alongside our degree programmes, Mountview offers three-year Diplomas in Professional Acting and Musical Theatre accredited by Trinity College London. Trinity students can access means-tested Dance and Drama Award grants.
We prepare prospective students for future undergraduate study with a range of one-year, full- and part-time Foundation in Acting and Musical Theatre courses.
