How to Pay

Guidance and information regarding methods of payment is available in the Fees and Payments  document.

Financing your studies

Whichever programme of study you choose, you will need to plan for the financial side of your studies.  In the following, we try to give some indication of which fees and expenses you are likely to expect. 

Even if you receive maintenance support from the UK government or a sponsor, the first payment to you may not be in time for you to cover accommodation or travel costs.  For any type of study, it may be useful for you to prepare a budget and to start saving for your studies well ahead of time. 

Before the start of your programme, our Finance Department or, if you are a CBTS student, your national RAD office will send you an invoice for the tuition fees by email.  You will also receive the Terms and Conditions for your programme of study.  It is your responsibility to make sure your fees and all expenses relating to your programme are paid in full and on time.

Should you apply for student loans for Higher Education from the UK government, please ensure that you send Registry the relevant confirmation ahead of your first day of study.  You will find further information and advice on the availability and application process for student loans on the government’s student finance pages: https://www.gov.uk/student-finance.

Some of our professional qualifications are listed under the name of the RAD on the register of training organisations maintained by the Skills Funding Agency.  You may be able to apply for a Professional and Career Development Loan and will find further information on this website: https://www.gov.uk/career-development-loans.  You can also contact the National Careers Service telephone helpline: 0800 100 900.

We also have a limited number of bursaries and scholarships available to students, one of which is the Iris Truscott Scholarship, which is awarded to a Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies graduate and Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Dance student in support and encouragement of their continued professional development as ballet teachers. To find out more about Iris Truscott and the Trust created in her name, please download her biography here .

If someone else sponsors you and pays all or part of the tuition fee for you, please let us know if your sponsor requires a separate invoice.  You are responsible for payment in case your sponsor does not pay your tuition fee. 

 

Home / EU Students 

2016 entry onwards: Maintenance grants will be replaced with loans for new full-time students in England starting their courses from September 2016. From 1 September 2016, the student finance package will include a tuition fee loan and a maintenance loan only. Students will still be able to apply for grants if they’re eligible for certain benefits, disabled, or need help with childcare costs.

Tuition fee loans are available from the government for UK/EU students living in the UK who secure a place studying for their first degree or other higher education course. 

For more information please visit www.gov.uk/student-finance
