Mountview’s diploma provides experienced students with the opportunity to develop theoretical, practical, creative and critical thinking skills. You will experience the challenge of a fast-paced production environment working on a broad range of projects and productions.
This is a one-year full-time vocational course and is ideal for students who wish to develop their experience and skills in management, theatre production arts or technical theatre through practical work in professional theatre environments. Since the course is non-accredited, it does not attract any government funding.
Diploma students choose their preferred area of production arts to specialise in:
- Stage management
Throughout the course you will develop your individual processes as a practitioner through a mix of workshops as well as collaborative and independent work, with regular appraisals to examine learning methods and set objectives.
You will undertake significant self-directed study and experience a range of performance environments working on Mountview productions and on professional placements. This provides excellent opportunities to gain important industry contacts and develop personal networks, both of which are key to your career progression.
