The Costs - Prospective Students
Fees and Finance for September 2017 entry
As a School of the Conservatoire for Dance and Drama (CDD), Central will be charging all new UK and EU students £9,250 a year in tuition fees.
This fee is supplemented by HEFCE grants provided through the CDD to reach the full training cost of approximately £18,400 per year.
If you are new to higher education, remember you will not have to pay anything upfront and you may be eligible for financial support from the CDD. You may also be entitled to financial support directly from Central.
The amount for International students has been set at a minimum of £18,400 a year.
Applications are direct to the school, not through UCAS, but this does not affect an applicant's ability to obtain financial support.
If you are an English domiciled student and this is your first degree you can apply for financial support from Student Finance England.
You can apply for:
- A tuition fee loan
- A maintenance loan (to help with living costs)
If you are an EU student intending to study in the UK, depending on your circumstances you may be entitled to:
- A tuition fee loan which you repay after graduating
- Help with living costs and certain other expenses
If you take out a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England, you will not have to repay anything until after you have graduated and are earning a minimum salary.
Non EU international students
Non-EU international students will be required to pay the full cost of their tuition. Fees for 2017/18 have been agreed at £18,400.
