Student Finance

Tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year are £9,250 per year for our undergraduate degree courses (FdA, BA & Top Up) and £6,500 per year for our postgraduate degree course.

UK students studying for their first undergraduate degree may be eligible to receive a tuition fee loan, as well as a maintenance loan to cover the cost of living while studying. Terms and conditions apply. If you have previously received funding to study at HE Level 4 or 5 then you will not be eligible for student fi nance, but may qualify for a career development loan. Please contact Student Finance England (www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance) for more information. You only start to pay back the tuition fee and maintenance loan once you have graduated and are earning over £25,000. Please apply for your financial support as soon as possible as it can take several months to process your application.

As part of our widening participation strategy, Backstage Academy offers a range of bursary schemes and hardship funds. To find out more, please contact us on 01977 659880 or email enquiries@ backstage-academy.co.uk.
