Bursaries and Scholarships

BURSARIES

An extensive bursary program assists financially disadvantaged students.

The aim of the Bursary is to assist families and students experiencing financial and/or other hardships to enable them to continue with their lessons.

A Bursary may be offered in the form of a discount of 50% and, in exceptional circumstances, up to 100% on tuition fees payable, depending on the financial, compassionate or other circumstances of applicants.

Application forms may be downloaded from the website or are available from the Conservatorium office.
