2021/2022 Fees

Total fees - 2 year course: £20,000

Coronavirus Update

MAMT believes in supporting all those who have the talent and determination to train, without financial situations being a barrier to their future career.

In light of everyone affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, we are offering considerable financial support exclusively for 2021 students who are enrolled by 31st January 2021. We believe that this is the only time such extensive money off will be available so that anyone can access MAMT's award-winning training.

Our support for you includes:

  1. All successful applicants will automatically receive a £5000 discount on course fees, reducing overall drama school fees to £15,000.
  2. Those applicants from a low income family will also be eligible for a further grant based on their family's financial situation which will be tailored to your specific situation and in some cases can reduce the fees even more considerably.
  3. Payment plans to split the tuition fee into smaller, more frequent payments will be considered.

The earlier you audition and, if successful, accept your place, the more financial support is available to you. With that in mind, we encourage you to take advantage of the early application opportunities by applying now.

Additionally, we have reduced our audition fee to just £15 for another year and this allows you to spend a day at the Academy with our senior faculty. You'll take part in some lessons to get a feel for why we're so proud of our training, meet current and graduate students, and receive written feedback on your audition pieces.

Please apply now to not only have the highest chance of being accepted but also have access to more financial support from the Academy.

A deposit of £2500 is required upon acceptance of a place. This is non-refundable and will be deducted from the second year’s course fees. The balance of fees is due on the following dates:

  • 1st March 2021 - £10,000 due
  • 1st March 2022 - £7,500 due
It should be noted that we have never turned a student away on purely financial grounds. If you have the talent and the work ethic to succeed within this industry as a performer then our senior faculty will work with you to try to find a solution to any funding issue. We welcome conversations and expressions of interest; all applications are treated with the strictest confidence.

The O'Donohue Scholarship

The O'Donohue Scholarship was founded in memory of Dublin-born sisters Maeve and Rosaleen, who loved to perform and inspired many others to do the same.

Two half-scholarships (valued at £10,000 each) are awarded each year to prospective students who have the talent, commitment and work ethic to build sustainable careers in Musical Theatre, but who otherwise lack the financial means to train.

Early applications are essential as once these 2 scholarships are awarded during the audition process each year, no further applications can be considered.

Students wishing to be considered for this scholarship will be means tested before any award is made.


We encourage prospective students and their families to consider the savings they will make by taking a 2 year course (rather than the standard 3 years that many other schools offer) and the vast savings to be made on living costs by not living in central London. There are various trusts and grants available for students who wish to study the arts so do consider a fundraising plan to help you fund your training.

We are always happy to meet with prospective students so do get in touch to discuss your own financial situation.
