Financial assistance 2021/22

No potential student should be deterred from applying to The Royal Ballet School due to lack of financial means. 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.

Qualifying households have a gross income under £50,000, and means tested support for fees and uniform ranges from 10% to 90%.

Please note: parents or guardians must apply for financial assistance each year, and must supply the new supporting documents relevant for that year’s application. Failure to provide the supporting documents precludes us from being able to process your application. Please note that this year we will be unable to process any means testing applications that are received after 31 July 2021.

If your financial circumstances change during the year please contact [email protected] to discuss matters further. We may be able to help if we are aware of the situation. All conversations with the Finance team are strictly confidential.
