TUITION FEES for BA (Hons) degree course:

For students to be able to apply for Student Loan Company funding, they must be studying a designated course. MPA applies for designation each year; for 2019/20 onwards, the Office for Students is the new regulator for Higher Education, and MPA is now in the process of applying to be included in the provider register. Once the outcome of the application is known, MPA will contact all those directly involved as well as publicise the result. It is envisaged that this will be after Easter 2019.

Student Annual Tuition Fee (2018-19) Future Annual Tuition Fee
Home / EU students £9,000 per annum (£6,000 of which is attainable via Student Loan should the student choose to apply)


It is likely that this level of fee will increase in line with the Government directives
European Economic Area students (Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Switzerland) £12,500 per annum It is envisaged that this fee will increase for subsequent years by at least the rate of inflation.


The full fee for all students for any of the Diploma Courses is £12,500 per annum. This fee includes private tuition in Singing and Acting for the Professional Diploma in Musical Theatre and dedicated dance classes for the Professional Diploma in Dance. MPA can offer reduced fees to those who successfully complete an application form to qualify for this. MPA makes the decision for any reduction based on all the information they have and this decision is final and at the discretion of the management.


The foundation course fee are £2750 per semester


Getting the most out of a creative arts education sometimes involves spending more than just the tuition fee. You will have books to buy, of course, as well as covering the printing costs for your research or written work. Sometimes you may need to travel to visit external specialist libraries or research centres and some of these may charge for the use of their facilities. Please note that further there will be additional costs associated with this type of practical training. Appropriate technical class wear, some make-up and smaller costume items (like stockings for the women and black socks for men) are all necessary to have in your ‘must have bag’. A set of good professionally shot photographs are also important and certain memberships of talent databases to allow yourself to be marketed professionally. It is also important that you keep abreast of developments in your chosen area of expertise and therefore it is expected that you will have first-hand knowledge of the Musical Theatre shows that are playing. On average these costs could add up to well over £500. per year.
