After you graduate

The Diploma and Advanced courses conclude with a professional showcase. While some MGA graduates have chosen to continue with further education or moved into teaching the next generation, most have made the successful transition from student to working professional. Our alumni have found employment all over the world, as well as within the UK performing arts industry. Many of our graduates have chosen to continue with representation by MGA Management.

This year’s graduating class can be found here.

MGA graduates have gone on to make successful careers across the industry, including roles in West End productions, international tours, TV and film, world-renowned cruise companies and entertainment agencies. As well as many successes in the UK and Europe, our alumni have travelled all round the globe, from Universal Studios in Japan to 5-star cruises around Australia, South East Asia and America!
