Diploma in Professional Musical Theatre

“I have been determined to make a career in performance
since I was seven – this course is going to turn that dream
into a reality”

First Year Student


The three year diploma course is validated by Trinity, London and has been devised for those who wish to focus on a professional training in theatre arts. It equips students with the technical and creative skills necessary for a successful career in dance and musical theatre.

Dance and Theatre studies are combined with associated areas such as Dance and Musical Theatre History, Music Theory and Appreciation, Fitness and Heath Studies and Employment Skills. In the final year, students undertake a personal project which provides an opportunity to focus on an area of particular interest, encouraging the development of an individual performance style. Many of our Diploma graduates are now enjoying success in the professional business and are promoted through our in-house Employment Agency.


Diploma to BA (Hons) Conversion Course

An exciting opportunity exists for students with a Diploma qualification to upgrade this to a BA (Hons), validated by the University of Greenwich. This will be a one year distance learning programme, allowing a graduate to continue their academic studies in their free time whilst in employment. The programme will comprise some short, intensive teaching periods at the College, and then the student will use email to communicate with their tutor and submit work.
