One-year BA (Hons) Top-Up

MGA offers performers who have already completed a full-time training course but have realised that they are not adequately prepared to compete for work opportunities within the industry the opportunity to join current MGA third-year students on the degree courses and ‘top-up’ their training to the BA (Hons) qualification.

MGA currently offers three courses for students at this level, click the links below to view the relevant information about each course and follow the application instructions at the bottom of that page.

You must be a UK or EU citizen to apply for MGA’s professional full-time training courses and be able to provide proof.

If you’re not sure whether you qualify to join the top-up programme or want to discuss your situation, please get in touch with our admissions team admissions@themgaacademy.com.

Full-Time Audition Dates

MGA is currently accepting first round applications for full-time training (September 2021 entry) – deadline Friday 27th November 2020.

We have adapted our application process in this time of change: all auditions will be in video format and all files will be submitted online. Please fill out the initial application form online and one of our team will be in touch with more information on what happens next and how to submit audition materials.

If you are unsure which course to apply for, please get in touch admissions@themgaacademy.com and the MGA Team will be happy to discuss it with you.
