2021 applications now open

We are thrilled to announce that applications for 2021 courses at Mountview are now open!

Whether you want to act, sing, design lighting, dance, programme sound or play an instrument, there is a Mountview course for you. We welcome all races, all religions, all nationalities, all sexual orientations, all genders and all age groups – you are welcome here in the Mountview community.

Vocational undergraduate courses include Acting, Musical Theatre, Actor Musicianship, Scenic Art and Prop Making, Lighting, Sound and Stage Management, while Foundation courses are available in Acting and Musical Theatre on both part- and full-time basis. Postgraduate training includes Theatre Directing, Musical Direction, Creative Producing, Site Specific Theatre Practice, Theatre for Community and Education, Acting and Musical Theatre. Degree programmes are validated by University of East Anglia and Diplomas by Trinity College London.

Admission onto courses is via audition and/or interview. First round Foundation, BA and MA performance auditions will take place online and candidates will need to submit a film of them performing their selected material. Details of how to submit the application, along with tips and filming advice will be sent upon application. There is a £20 online audition fee for first round auditions.

Successful candidates will be invited to Mountview for a second round of in-person workshops and auditions, and will be provided with further details nearer the time. Recalls may include online options for applicants those who live far away and would find it financially difficult to come to London.

Theatre Production Arts and Scenic Art and Prop-Making applicants will take part in an online interview with the course leader at which you will discuss your interests, influences and production arts experience. You may be required to submit examples of your previous work/experience, or an online portfolio of work. There is no interview fee.
