Preparatory course

The preparatory course for the Maastricht Theatre Academy is intended for candidates wishing to take the three-year part-time Drama Teacher/Directing programme. Completing the preparatory course does not guarantee admission to that course, however.

Admission requirements

There are two ways of being admitted to the preparatory course:

• after taking an orientation workshop led by preparatory course instructors;

or

• after successfully taking part in the selection procedure for the part-time programme and receiving a recommendation.

Candidates must be over 21 years of age and hold a diploma from a nationally recognised research university (“WO”) or university of applied sciences (“HBO”), or be studying at such an institution, preferably with a focus on applied social studies (agogiek) and/or the arts.

Practical information

• You can sign up for the orientation workshop for the preparatory course by submitting the relevant application form.

• If you have successfully taken part in the selection procedure for the part-time programme and received a recommendation, then you can definitely be admitted. You must, however, confirm your participation in writing.

• The orientation workshop is given on 26 June 2010 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

• Registration for the orientation workshop costs EUR 20. This should be transferred to giro account number 6293348 in the name of “Toneelacademie Maastricht”, stating “Oriënterende workshop vooropleiding (your name)”.

• The course fee for the preparatory course in 2010–2011 is EUR 450. This cannot be refunded if you drop out before the end of the course.

LOT

You can also take a preparatory course for the day-time programme, the “LOT” course. This is given not only in Maastricht but also at other locations in the Netherlands. For more information go to www.theateropleidingen.nl.
