Tuition fees

Millennium Performing Arts is an outstanding College for training and educating professional performers; delivering courses that embrace all allied skills, concluding in over 95% of successful completion. Recent strategic developments have positioned MPA to support diverse qualifications and training within both FE and HE provision. Additionally, MPA has targeted an ambitious pathway towards becoming the go-to College for professional industry-ready graduate recruitment and professional development opportunities.

MPA made an application for registration to the Office for Students (OfS) in April 2019. As of September 2019, we are yet to receive an outcome of this registration decision. We are aware of the difficulties this lengthy process may bring, however, we remain fully committed to doing everything we can to minimise the potential financial impact for students wishing to train with us. Unfortunately, this situation means that new Degree Students cannot access Student Finance (loans or other financial support) at this time.

The OfS registration process is essential – however, it has not stopped or inhibited any of our continued professional work; essential for industry validation of MPA and its training. As shown by the various accreditations; validations and successful inspections MPA continues to achieve good and commended outcomes from QAA; CDMT; TCL and Ofsted); there is no question regarding the high quality of the College’s educational offer, evidenced by our alumni who are working across the world in many very varied theatrical and non-theatrical positions.
