It is our aim that no student is prevented from attending the RCMJD for reasons of financial hardship.

Bursaries are means-tested and allocated according to financial need.*

The application deadline for bursaries for the 2017-18 academic year has passed. The PDFs at the bottom of this page are for reference only; if your child is already in the Department and you wish to enquire about making an application for the current academic year, please contact us.

If you wish to apply for help with next academic year’s RCMJD fees, please re-visit this page after the end of February 2018 when application forms for 2018-19 will be available.

*Eligibility for financial support is judged in accordance with the criteria set out for HM Government's Music & Dance Scheme.
