Bursaries & Scholarships

We want to ensure that no one turns down a place on the Summer Academy due to the cost.

We have a bursary fund that supports students and their families dependent on their situation.

Bursaries and scholarships support young people from underrepresented backgrounds (i.e. Black, Asian and ethnic minority students, disabled students and those from low-income households).


If you are applying for a bursary because your total taxable household income is under £50,000, please see the information below. For all other bursary applications, you do not need to complete the form as we will have the information we need from your enrolment application. If you have any questions, please contact us at 


Bursary levels for 2023:

  • For families with a total household taxable income below £25,000, we have 5 x fully funded places covering tuition fees, accommodation and travel costs (within the UK) available.

  • For families with a total household taxable income between £25,000 - £50,000, we have partial bursaries and scholarships towards tuition fees available.

Summer Academy Turntable Image Learning From Home

Learning in the Digital Space

Summer Academy students will have access to Leeds Conservatoire's virtual learning environment SPACE giving students access to interactive resources and the ability to upload a mixture of videos and recordings.

All lessons will be delivered in person so students can discuss new topics and concepts with their tutors and peers, as well as having individual time to implement new topics into their own practice. 

SPACE is used as an additional resource that tutors may use in their lessons.

As well as this Theatre strand, there are two other available Summer Academy pathways to choose from in Performance and in Music Production. All three strands will run on the same dates of Monday 1  - Friday 5 August 2022.
