If you think it will be too expensive for you to join our courses, you’re almost certainly wrong. We can advise you about this at audition and, if you’re offered a place, we can help you to find the grants and grant-making bodies.
There are various ways to make your training more accessible and affordable:
- Scholarships & Awards – Winners of the scholarship will have up to half their course fees paid for them. This is on application basis and is awarded to those most in need of financial assistance and who are willing to go above and beyond in their commitment to training. You may apply for the scholarship after you have auditioned and been accepted onto the course. Other awards will also be made. Students will be assessed on not only their need for financial help but will be expected to demonstrate the following: a positive attitude, ability as an actor, commitment to training, and a high level of professionalism.
- Extended Courses – Flexible courses which can be tailored for you. Say you’re on our One Year Professional Acting Course but you can only afford the first two terms, you may take a year out and then come back to finish the third term next year.
- Financial Consultation – After receiving a place offer we can provide you with a free tutorial to go through the various funding options available to you and to discuss the best ways to get you training with us.
We’ll also provide you with a detailed guide to fundraising which includes:
- Grants advisory services
- Online sources
- Key publications
- Industry funding sources
- Fundraising methods
Anything is possible, provided you take the first step and send in your application.
Fees and Funding
We are committed to making it as easy as possible for you to become an actor. As a non-profit making educational charity we charge only the basic cost of training, with many services donated entirely free of charge by the professional practitioners who support The Bridge’s work and give something back because they know how much of a commitment you are making to your training. Tuition fees are payable in advance each term.
