Higher education funding is changing in 2012. Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, as an affiliate of the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama, has an updated fee structure and a new scholarship scheme to offer financial support.
Detailed information about fees and financial support for your training is available from the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama where you can download the CDD booklet on Fees and Financial Assistance 2012-13.
Fees for UK/EU students applying for the FD/BA (Hons) Degree courses in Ballet and Contemporary Dance are set at £9,000 per year. If you are new to higher education, you can apply for a tuition fee loan from the Government and you will not have to pay anything up front. You will not have to pay back your loan until after you have graduated and are earning over £21,000.
Our students may be eligible for the following financial support:
- Government loans to cover tuition fees and living costs (through Student Finance England at Direct Gov)
- Government maintenance grants to help with living costs (for students from a household income of below £42,875 which does not have to be paid back)
- Conservatoire Scholarships. Many students will be eligible for fee discounts and will not have to pay the full £9,000
- All students may apply for a Rambert School bursary, which can cover some of the fees. However, these will not normally cover the whole of the fee requirement. Students must have started their course at the School before being eligible to apply for a bursary
- Career and Professional Development Loans, for students who already have a degree
Care Leaver Bursary

Student Finance England
In order to apply for a Conservatoire Scholarship, you will need to be income assessed by Student Finance England. However, because this is a new system, it is likely that you will not be able to apply for income assessment or for a student loan before February 2012. This will not affect your application.
Non-EU international students will be required to pay the full cost of their tuition. Fees for 2012/13 will be £16,200 for our undergraduate courses.
