Scholarships & Bursaries


For Home fees undergraduate students who are new to Higher Education the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama offers a Scholarship to students whose Household income £25,000 or less. They also offer a Care Leaver and Estranged Students Bursary for all home fee students on all undergraduate programmes who meet the definition of a care leaver or estranged student. The Care Leaver and Estranged Students Bursary is allocated in addition to any other financial support.

How do I apply to the Conservatoire Scholarship Scheme?

If you wish to be considered for a Conservatoire Scholarship, you need to indicate as appropriate on your application form to the school/s. You then need to complete an application to Student Finance England (or its equivalent) as early as possible in order to be income assessed. Remember to allow consent to share information. This will allow the Conservatoire to assess what level of support you may be entitled to.

For more information please visit the CDD Fees and Financial Support page. 

The Students’ Fund

To alleviate some of the financial pressures that students face The Students’ Fund is a donor supported fund that exists to assist students with tuition, maintenance or other costs.

Any student, whether home, overseas, undergraduate or postgraduate can apply to the Fund demonstrating their financial need and individual circumstances and, in most cases, receive a sum of money to support them while they are studying.

Once a student has accepted their place at London Contemporary Dance School information on how to apply to this fund will be sent to them.  For more information on the Students’ Fund email.
