CERTIFICATE OF HIGHER EDUCATION – MUSICAL THEATRE
We are excited to launch our new full-time Certificate of Higher Education Musical Theatre course, which is awaiting validation by University of East Anglia ahead of its launch in September 2024. This course provides students with an artistically safe and supportive environment to develop their creative instincts while also preparing them for future training and career opportunities within the performing arts.
The course is framed by a focus on discovery. Students will be trained to develop their own personal skill strengths, cultivate independent growth, expand their artistic vocabulary and grow as creative artists.
Students will also gain an understanding of different vocational routes and will be given career tutorials to explore their next steps, alongside focussed audition preparation and 1:1 coaching on auditions.
A CertHE course is a great option for students from a wide range of backgrounds, whether you want to develop your skills before progressing to a three-year training option or as a standalone course before entering the industry directly.
The CertHE Musical Theatre course runs in several locations, giving students the opportunity to choose a location which is convenient for them.
• London (Mountview)
• Manchester (Z-Arts)
• Birmingham (Midlands Arts Centre)
All course locations are taught by Mountview staff and will cover the same syllabus.
Graduates of the programme have gone onto secure places at Mountview, RADA, Guildhall, LAMDA, Arts Ed, Italia Conti, Central School of Speech and Drama, Trinity Laban, Emile Dale, LSMT, Laine Theatre Arts, Royal Academy of Music, Institute of the Arts Barcelona, Rose Bruford and GSA, as well as going directly to work within the industry.

Spanning over two terms of study, the CertHE course offers a fast-paced, vocational training environment.

Students will have two opportunities to work in a rehearsal setting, each culminating in a shared performance piece.
