London.  Although an on-line option is available and all students are invited to attend the Edinburgh Festival for 2 nights in August.  We arrange accommodation, Fringe Club membership and networking meetings.  You are responsible for your own travel to and from Scotland.

How many students do you have per class?

We want to keep the classess small, but there are a maximum of 12 places available.

How often does the Diploma run?

At the moment, this is a one-off opportunity.

Can I interview on-line or do I have to come to London?

You can interview online and even take the whole diploma online if you wish.

Do you offer any bursaries? No, sadly, not at the moment.  Although there are outside organisations that supply bursaries that can be applied for.

Can I fail to be awarded a Diploma?

Yes. Students who do not reach expected standards will not be awarded the Diploma, but all students will be awarded an attendance certificate. The diploma will be assesed by a final inteveriew.
