All students are invited to attend two workshops (one in-studio and one online) as part of the programme fees.

Payments

Associate classes are invoiced on one invoice at the beginning of September for the full academic year ahead. The invoice will automatically include the discount as a result of any means tested bursary awarded for fees and uniform.

  • Fees can be either paid in full or spread in nine equal instalments from 1 September to 1 May.
  • School fees are invoiced in August and your first payment is required on or before 1 September or first working day in September.
  • Payments can be made via direct debit, standing order with your bank or bank transfer.

Additional costs for parents

The initial cost for uniform and physio equipment will be between £50 and £100 dependent on Associate level.

How does means-testing bursary work?

The Associate programme is generously supported by donors to offer means tested financial support to qualifying families for; course fees, uniform costs and travel bursaries.

Financial support through means-testing bursary is based on the level of your family’s gross household income each year. Income includes everything included on a tax return plus any salary sacrifice schemes (in the UK) and taxable benefits

Once we have calculated your relevant income, we will apply formula to give the fee amount due.

  • Qualifying households have a gross income under £60,000, and means tested support for fees and uniform ranges from 10% to 90%.

Travel Bursaries

The bursary award will be based on the number of miles to and from the student’s home address and Associate centre. A copy of the AA Route Planner directions to back up your mileage claim is to be submitted as evidence alongside your financial application. More information on the specifics of how to apply for 2021-22 financial assistance including uniform and travel bursary will be provided by the end of June.

Please note: The maximum individual travel bursary award is capped at £1,000 for the year.

The travel bursary is paid in two instalments. The first instalment of 50% of the expected total bursary is paid in late December. The second instalment is paid after the end of the academic year, in August, and will reflect any adjustment for the number of sessions attended during the total year. We are unable to contribute to travel costs if a student did not attend class.

Withdrawals

Classes

Should you wish to withdraw a student from the Associate programme, you must give one term’s notice, in writing to the Associate Programme Manager. The fee for the notice period is payable regardless of whether the student is attending the classes.
