Waiting on the schools

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

 

This has been my first time auditioning to vocational dance schools in the UK. From everyone's vast experience here with dd's and ds's, I would like to when or how long do schools take to reply to queries or decisions about help with funding?

 

I understand that they are closed during the months of July and August... during what time period are bursaries/awards/scholarships given out in the months leading up to the course? 

 

The wait is seriously killing me. 

 

Thank you!

It depends on lots of variables including the course qualification (degree, HND, diploma etc) and on the schools own processes, for example whether they hold separate funding auditions. If you are waiting for something specific bear in mind that most schools have only recently gone back after the Easter break and we are just heading into another bank holiday weekend.

Thank you mnemo. I suspect this might be part of the delay in colleges getting back... guess I will just give them a call in the second week of may if I hear nothing. I've applied for both hnd and degree courses.

 

Hi Lisa, I'm a quiet reader here at the forums and love your posts about your time at Northern and urdang and dancer life in general :)

You can often pick up from the forum when people have received results from somewhere. Hammond DaDa funding results from Wednesdsy's final were out yesterday.

Yes that was super quick!  Was expecting to have to wait until after the Bank Holiday.

Hi, Just reading your post and seeing that your address is in India.

 

Like so many other overseas students unless you hold UK residential status than the bursaries and DaDa's quoted won't be for you. Any funding/bursaries etc would have to come from your own Educational funding system available for you in your country of residence. Just like you would if you were attending a UK university. 

 

Sorry if that is not quite what you want to hear but it may actually open up your options for funding.

Hi balletbean,

 

If there was funding for ballet in my own country I would've leapt at the opportunity the moment I received an offer letter.

 

However I have managed to receive a partial scholarship from the college and am hoping for more funding from 2 more potential sources for the next 3 years, but thank you for your insight!
