Course dates are given in the letter of acceptance and course fees are given in the fee invoice
for each course. A place on a course will only be deemed to be accepted if accompanied by payment
of a deposit. Receipt of the deposit will be confirmed in writing and acceptance of any Student
is not confirmed until that letter has been issued.
Students will not be permitted to commence any course or part thereof unless all course fees due
as shown in the fee invoice are paid. Fees for the three year and one year courses for EU Students
are to be paid termly being two months in advance of the term commencement date as per the schedule
given at the start of the course. Fees for the foundation course are to be paid in full on an annual
basis being two months in advance of the start of the course.
Course fees are reviewed annually at the School’s discretion.
All deposits payable in respect of courses are also non-returnable until the successful completion
of the course (save in the event that a course is cancelled by the School whereby the deposit will
be returned as soon as reasonably possible). Repayments of deposits will take place within 6 weeks
of the successful completion of the course. Please note any charges incurred by the School will be
charged to the Student including late payment charges and any other charges, in particular items
found missing from the library will be charged equally between all Students and such sum automatically
deducted from the deposit before repayment.
Course fees do not include the provision of scripts, play texts, clothing for classes, personal DVDs, CDs
or any other material.
