To students arriving in September 2020 for the 1 year Diploma Course please note there are changes in the Start Date and Fee Structure for 2020 entry.
Our 1 Year Diploma course is full-time running for 40 weeks over three terms. Daily class times will be confirmed nearer the start of the course, but days will run either from 9am until 4.30pm or 9.30am till 5.15pm. You may be required to come into school on some evenings, weekends or bank holidays and will be expected to read scripts in your spare time.
Changes to fee structure:
|£9250||Core Training: Terms 1 & 2|
|£2750||Professional Launch: Term 3|
Due to the covid-19 changes, we have reduced the course fee to £9250. This continues to be payable before the course starts and will cover all training. In addition to the course fees, you will be responsible for any equipment costs, details of which have been sent to you directly.
You will also be required to pay £2750 for the costs of your professional launch in Term 3. The costs relate to your final professional preparation sessions, as well as any live productions and recorded show reels as outlined in the Course Structure. This amount is payable by 1st February 2021.
Please note: the DSL diploma will only be awarded to those completing the full 3 term programme on successful completion of either the productions and showcases OR the production of the show reel.
