Mountview Launches New CertHE Musical Theatre Course

We are delighted to be launching a new two-term Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE) in Musical Theatre across four locations which will welcome its first class of students in September 2024. This is the first time Mountview has offered a CertHE, building on our outstanding reputation and student offering. The CertHE replaces our Foundation Musical Theatre course, which previously ran in London and Manchester, and will provide students with an artistically safe and supportive environment where they can develop their creative instincts and prepare for careers in the performing arts.

As well as being available in London (Mountview) and Manchester (Z-arts), students will have the opportunity to study the Musical Theatre CertHE in Exeter (Exeter Phoenix) and Birmingham (Midlands Arts Centre). The course will include 30 hours of training per week, and successful applicants will be able to apply for loans and other funding pending validation of the course by the University of East Anglia. The application deadline is 3 June 2024.

“We are proud to extend Mountview’s training opportunities to Birmingham and Exeter, building on our current offering in London and Manchester. By expanding our training beyond our home in Peckham, we are excited to be able to bring world-class training to new students across the country and open up access to the dramatic arts.”

Sally Ann Gritton, Principal of Mountview

Students will study full-time for two terms developing their personal strengths and growing as creative artists. Students will gain an understanding of potential vocational routes through career tutorials alongside audition preparation and individual coaching. They will hone their acting, singing and dance skills, culminating in a shared performance at the end of each term.

The course will serve either as preparation for an undergraduate degree at Mountview or elsewhere, or as a standalone programme prior to beginning a career in the performing arts.
