In this section, you’ll find details about tuition fees and how you can cover the cost of these.

From student loans to scholarships and bursaries, as well as funding from external organisations, we have all the information you need.

The Academy prides itself on being able to accept students purely on the basis of their potential and talent, and we’ll try to help deserving candidates as much as possible. The amount available for scholarships and bursaries varies from year to year, with some funding coming from the Academy’s own endowments and the rest secured through the generosity of individuals, companies, trusts and foundations.

Students should also seek government support where possible. In particular, UK and eligible EU undergraduate students should look into tuition fee loans and, if applicable, maintenance loans. Similarly, UK and eligible EU Master’s and PhD students can apply for government loans to assist with the costs of study. Details of how to apply can be found here. EU students are normally eligible if they began their course in or before 2020. For courses starting on or after 1 August 2021, the new UK Government guidance states that EU students must have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme to get student finance.

There are various sources of funding available and we want everyone to feel like studying at the Academy is a possibility. If you have questions after reviewing the information in this section of our website, you are welcome to contact our Student Funding Manager, Christina Jefferson, on
