Fees are set by the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama (CDD) and applications are direct to the school, not through UCAS. Information about the fees for UK/EU students and the financial support available through the Conservatoire's Scholarship Scheme and through government grants and loans can be found on the Conservatoire's website.
UK and EU FEES
As noted above, these will be not less than £12,250. Students studying on this course are eligible to apply for a Postgraduate Loan through the Student Loans Company. For more information please visit the Student Loans Company website.
OVERSEAS TUITION FEES
Non-EU international students are required to pay the full cost of their fees and living costs and are made an offer on the basis of paying privately. However, all funding issues are discussed individually with each student once an offer has been made. Fees for 2018-19 have yet to be agreed, but will not be less than £18,950. Further information about fee rates for non-EU international students will be available from RADA and on the Conservatoire website, once agreed. Please check our website regularly for updates.
COSTS NOT INCLUDED IN THE FEES
There will be extra costs of approximately £300 to cover board and lodging for any festivals or performances outside of London and for practice clothes and books.
Home and EU students can apply to Student Finance England / Wales, NI, or Student Awards Agency Scotland for a student loan of up to £10,000. For more alternative sources of funding visit the CDD website.
All RADA undergraduate students who are new to higher education are immediately eligible for financial support through the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama’s scholarship scheme. RADA aims to “top up” these scholarships, which are based on income assessments for people with a family income of under £42,875. Amounts may vary, as RADA raises funds for these scholarships, but for the last two years, the amount offered to each eligible student has been a minimum of £3,000 per year (inclusive of the CDD support).
RADA will consider other home/EU students for financial support and we have a very small number of scholarships which will cover fees and, in some cases, living costs. Our priority is supporting students on undergraduate degrees (BA Acting, FdA/BA Technical Theatre and Stage Management), although we will consider applications from students on the MA Theatre Lab and the PgD Theatre Costume in exceptional circumstances. Please note, we do not usually offer scholarships to students from outside the UK or EU.
Students will be invited to apply for scholarship support once the offer of a place is made. Please keep an eye on the website for more information about our Scholarship Scheme.
HOME STUDENT STATUS
There is a non-refundable application fee of £55. The application fee is only taken on offer of an audition.
