    Obviously anything that's accredited is bloody fab, but talking to a few professional stage managers, they said LAMDA and Bristol old vic were the two best courses for technical courses. Any reason you've eliminated LAMDA? I got a place at Bristol; the place was great but for personal reasons and the general feeling, I chose London.

    As far as scenic arts goes RSAMD its really good from what I know about it but I would avoid Rose Bruford as a priority until you have open-dayed and spoken to staff and pupils. I know people who have gone their and been throughly disappointed with the course. Its not bad but even the teachers have told people to go to Central/Mountview/LAMDA etc if you get in.
    I'm not saying they are bad but I wouldn't put them as a top priority until you've been there.

    Ooh I forgot about LAMDA! That one looks good too, and I like the look of Rosie B because, personally we have links with the school (my sixth form) and we've had alot of people go there and I like the look of it. I've heard alot from former pupils of our school who liked it too

    But yeah Mountview is one of the tops even though it's only two years, I'd love some insight into that and LAMDA aaand Central, thanks PRetty much whatever tips etc you can all offer me, thankyou! I already do a BTEC in Production currently.

    Ill write something up for you on Mountview when I get a moment and PM it to you
    Don't be fooled by the two year thing though, its an intense two years as you do the same amount of weeks as a three year course but in two years so you get into the industry faster. Its no less work (which unfortunately some applicants assume and quickly learn otherwise) or experience.

    for Central, are you applying for technical and production management, or scenic art, or prop making, or costume construction? cos we have separate courses for each, although it will be highly collaborative

    I'm not sure entirely yet, but at the moment I'm finding I very much enjoy Scenic Art and thought about applying for that, but I haven't decided properly yet, although I shall soon! Would you be able to give me some info on the Scenic Art course though? Thankyou in advance
