Assisted Application Scheme Announced for Undergraduate Courses

Central School of Ballet has announced a new scheme aimed at reducing barriers to entry for students applying for September 2024 entry to undergraduate courses. Central recognises that some individuals and communities in our society face obstacles and experience unfair disadvantage. The Assisted Application Scheme aims to address these obstacles and ensure that talented dancers from all backgrounds are able to access the world-class training on offer at the School.

The Assisted Application Scheme, along with waiving the undergraduate application fee, offers a range of benefits for applicants. Benefits of the scheme include opportunities to meet informally with members of the School team to gain support and guidance, financial support throughout the admissions process, and free tickets to events and performances throughout the year to better get to know the School.

“We want to ensure that applicants are supported at every step of their journey. The Assisted Application Scheme is part of a range programmes, activities and outreach work that support and engage prospective applicants, young people, and the wider community to find out more about Central school of Ballet, engage with our activities and feel part of our community. If you have a passion for dance and want excellent training, we look forward to welcoming you.” “

– Maxine Bunting Thomas, Head of Widening Participation and Access
