Who is the Diploma course suitable for?

This is a practical, part-time producing course suitable for people who:

  • wish to develop producing skills and knowledge without having to give up a day job.
  • work in an allied area (e.g. arts management/administration, education and outreach/acting) and wish to gain a more practical experience.
  • would like to gain confidence and enhance communication skills.
  • are considering studying producing at MA/MFA level and would like experience.

Structure of course

The diploma has been moved online. It means you will work one or two evenings from September, plus individual tutorials, with the option of 2 nights in Edinburgh - the world's largest open arts festival - if it should happen.


Where does the course take place?

In the current world-wide virus situation we have suspended the Live from London element, so we are on-line.  All students are invited to attend the Edinburgh Festival for 2 nights in August, should it happen.  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 classes small, but there are a maximum of 10 places available.

How often does the Diploma run?

At the moment, this is a one-off opportunity.  But it may become an annual event.

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

You interview online .

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 assessed by a final interview.

Is the Diploma accredited by a university?

No - and deliberately not. The course director has a Masters Degree, but we want this to be a practical course and concentrate on producing theatre rather than academic qualifications, which add considerably to the fees.  All of the faculty have post-doctoral experience.
