MGA accepts applications for full-time professional training all year round, until course places are full – so the earlier in the year you apply, the more places will be available. There’s no need to wait to audition, simply apply below today! We are currently in Phase 6 of applications, through to Sunday 26th June.

After you fill in the form, a member of our team will be in touch to give you information on the audition process and explain how to submit your audition materials. Please choose which method of auditioning you want to do so we can send you the correct information: either online video submisions or in-person at MGA in Edinburgh. If you choose to apply for more than one course you will be sent the audition material for each one.

Details of all our courses can be found on our Full-Time Training pages. If you are unsure which course to apply for, please get in touch admissions@themgaacademy.com and the MGA Team will be happy to discuss it with you.
