Funding for 6th form 3 year dance

Recommended Posts

Hello Hattersley32 and welcome to the forum.

 

Can you give us a little more information? Is this a 16+ course? Is it at a UK school? What qualification are the students aiming for at the end of the course? Is the school part of the Dance and Drama Scheme?

Hello Hattersly32 and welcome to the Forum!

 

I have moved your query to the more appropriate Doing Dance forum and added some tags.

 

If you click on the tags you will get lists of previous topics that cover, amongst other items, funding.

 

Has your daughter been accepted onto an Upper School course?

Hi yes she has had one acceptance so far and I can apply for dada award but this only covers tuition not accommodation the other two that are possibilities dada award is not available. One is a level 6 diploma and one is hnd course. All English and Scottish.

Yes, I don't think the DaDa covers accommodation. I wouldn't have thought an HND course would attract Student Finance, unlike Degree Courses. Do any of the schools offer bursaries or scholarships?

Student finance is I believe available for many HND courses although it would depend on the specific institution.

 

Student Finance & Dada are the only two funding methods really unless an institution offers school scholarships there may be very limited specific charities/bursary funds usually for people in particular circumstances but these are very few & far between & lots of people will be applying for them.

by level 6  do you mean the English / Welsh level 6  i.e. Degree  level   (the SQCF  is slightly  different  and  includes the 'entry' levle qualifications  in itls  levels  despite them being belowthe expected range of attainment of a 'normal' 16 year  old ),  HNDs are level 5  these are actually higher education courses and  the funding if the  institution is compliant  with  the requires of SFE would be via student finance

HNC, HND and Degree courses are all funded by Student Finance England provided they are a recognised qualification with either an awarding body or and awarding institution.  HE funding does give the opportunity for a maintenance loan, however dependent on you income it could be as little as £2800 and all has to be paid back once the student is earning £25k or more, though the interests rates are good.

......IF the school/college can apply for and HAS applied for eligibility for Student Finance. If it has not, it would be worth asking where the school is on the applcation pathway and when it will be eligible to offer student loans.

There are some schools which are classed as 'private' and as such don't come under the normal student funding arrangements. The school should be able to assist with the various ways available for successful applicants to access funding, possibly via a school bursary or scholarship. If that is the case, then it is worth reading the small print very carefully so you know and understand the terms and what you are committing yourself to financially.

Always best to speak directly to the authority who has given the school or college it's accreditation. There was a thread before, on the forum it was about a place calling itself a dance school when they weren't, it was in the Dancing Times. Students were cheated out of money and the teacher was arrested and convicted of fraud. There was advice on there about checking with CDET or Conservatoire etc. You really can't be too careful
