Mountview is a truly international school and regularly welcomes applicants from over 60 countries.
Unless you are a UK or Irish citizen, you will normally need a Student visa to study in the UK.Applications must be made online at GOV.UK and students can apply up to six months before their course starts.
Further information on applying for a Student visa can be found on the UK Government website here.
If you will require a study visa you should apply by 1 May 2024 – this should allow sufficient time for your visa to be processed for a September 2024 start. We will accept applications up to 2 June 2024, however due to time restraints, it may not be possible for your visa to be processed if you apply after 1 May 2024.
Mountview can never guarantee a student will be successful in securing a student visa, however we will do our best to support you through the process. If you have any questions on the process, please email email@example.com
If an applicant requires a student visa and their first language is not English, they will need to prove their knowledge of the English language before applying for their student visa. This must be demonstrated by passing a Secure English Language Test (SELT) from an approved provider or having a GCSE, A level, Scottish National Qualification level 4 or 5, Scottish Higher or Advanced Higher in English, gained through study at a UK school that they began when they were under 18.
Course fee rates for UK and Republic of Ireland residents and for international students are published on the relevant course page of this website. EU students who do not hold UK pre-settled or settled status will be charged the international fee rate.
Applicants are required to have a clear idea of how they would finance their training at Mountview prior to attending an audition. We strongly advise applicants to research funding options available to them as soon as possible should they wish to pursue training in the UK.
The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) is able to provide information and advice on visa and funding options for international students studying in the UK.
