• Five GCSE passes and two A-Levels or
• Four SCE Higher Grade passes

• Foundation course

Students who receive a Dance and Drama Award (DaDA) will work towards the Trinity College London Diploma in Professional Acting in addition to completing the BA (Hons) in Performance.
If an applicant’s first language is not English, and they have not been taught in English or studied to A Level standard in the UK, they will need to demonstrate an acceptable minimum level of competence through the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) (Band 6.5).
Mountview welcomes applications from people with disabilities and is keen to support all applicants to achieve their best. If applicants have any special requirements or access needs, these should be discussed with the course leader/administrator.
