BA (Hons) Top-Up Year

MGA offers performers who have already completed a full-time training course but have realised that they are not adequately prepared to compete for work opportunities within the industry the opportunity to join current MGA third-year students on the degree courses and ‘top-up’ their training to the BA (Hons) qualification.

MGA currently offers three courses for students at this level, click the links below to view the relevant degree page and follow the application instructions at the bottom of the page.

If you’re not sure whether you qualify to join the top-up programme or want to discuss your situation, please get in touch with the MGA Office.
