Our courses

We offer a one year foundation course structured for you to develop your knowledge, technique and performance ability to then progress onto one of the more established vocational learning institutions.

Alternatively, if you wish to intensify and accelerate your learning, to fast-track and be industry ready then you can extend your time with us for a further year where you will gain a musical theatre diploma with an added level 4 qualification in dance teaching too.

This will support and enable students to be employable in the theatre industry and also use teaching as a supporting back-up, to train either their own pupils, teach at a performing arts school or be employed in mainstream education as a peripatetic tutor.

Intensive teaching experience

Starquest Performers College only takes a small number of entrants each year as we believe in offering a more intensive teaching experience so our students gain a greater in-depth knowledge of the curriculum with a more hands-on and concentrated pace than the larger establishments.

Regulated examinations

All our examinations are regulated by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) which are run in alignment with recognised awarding bodies and the CDMT.

Small class sizes

We make sure you get our full attention as students spend a greater amount of their day-to-day time learning and you are treated as a person and not just a number.

Experienced teachers and tutors

Our exceptional teaching faulty is made up of regular and guest teachers who come from professional performing backgrounds and also teach at other well-know performing arts colleges, so are well equipped with the skills to help you achieve your goals.

Cost-effective

We are a fraction of the price of the big colleges because we know that having to pay out large fees and the prospect of student dept is a daunting one. So that is why we have made our courses more affordable.

Student employment

We are thrilled about the successes our graduating students are achieving and who now have professional careers in the performing arts industry and are fulfilling their dreams.
