Many students come to us with all the determination and talent to make it as practicing artists, but without the financial means to fulfil their potential. That’s why annually we provide a number of bursaries, to give a foot up to our long course students.
Bursaries and any financial need, should be discussed at interview. The Course Coordinator will then follow up by sending out a Student Application Form. This will then be considered as part of the offer that is made.
If a student’s financial situation changes during study, the Course Coordinator should be informed as soon as possible. A review will then take place. We always do our best to help our students.
