Undergraduate Study

If you are normally resident in England, you will be eligible for the same funding package that you would benefit from if you attended an English institution. You can apply for a loan to cover up to the full tuition fee cost of your course from the Student Loans Company.


You can make an application for funding online through Student Finance England.  You can apply online up to nine months before the start of the Royal Conservatoire’s academic year. You don’t need to have applied for a course or received an offer in order to begin applying for funding – it’s best to apply early to avoid any disappointment.

Have a look at Student Finance England’s Quick Start Guide for advice on how to apply for funding   Student Finance England UG Funding Guide 18/19

Information is also available via The Student Room.

Student Finance England – How you are assessed and Paid

Support from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

In addition to any support you may receive from Student  Finance England, the Royal Conservatoire has introduced additional scholarships for new English students to partly offset the introduction of a higher level of tuition fee. We will use the residual household income figure as calculated by the Student Loans Company (SLC) when assessing scholarship entitlement. Depending on your residual household income you will be guaranteed to receive the following level of scholarship for each year of your degree programme if you are successful in taking up your offer of admission to the Royal Conservatoire. You will be able to use your scholarship to either contribute towards your tuition fee or towards your general living costs and it will be paid to you in three instalments. 


Residual Household Income Royal Conservatoire English Scholarship
Up to £25,000 £3,000
£25,001 to £30,000 £1,750
£30,001 to £35,000 £1,250
