Irrespective of the outcome of Britain’s proposed withdrawal from the European Union, EU citizens commencing training at Mountview in September 2019 will continue to pay the same fee as UK citizens for the duration of their course.

Any international applicants who have questions regarding applications, eligibility for study and securing a visa for study should contact Harriet Downing, Registry Manager:


Mountview is a truly international school and regularly welcomes applicants from over 30 countries.
Applicants whose first language is not English will need to demonstrate an acceptable level of fluency through the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), Minimum level required – Band 6.5. A list of approved IELTS testing centres can be found here.

If you are a non-UK / EU citizen you will normally need a Tier 4 Adult (General) Student Entry Clearance to study 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

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.
