Musical Theatre Courses
Musical Theatre Training
Post Graduate Musical Theatre
Fees for the course commencing September 2020 are a total of £16,100 and include all tuition (including private singing and portfolios) and organised theatre trips. Students are required to pay a deposit of £1000 to secure their place upon acceptance, and the remaining fees in advance of the start of the course.
LSMT recognise that an investment into a training of this calibre is a serious financial commitment. We would recommend that before applying, prospective students ensure that they have planned a funding strategy, which may include the acquisition of a private loan or sponsorship. The school is a purely vocational training outside of the university framework, and students are therefore not eligible for a loan through the SLC. Although we are unable to offer full grants for the training, the school is a registered charity (Number 1166152) and offers several grants for part-funding, available as a subsidy against fees. Application for these funds is available to students who have been offered a place on the course.
General Training Grants
There are several awards of up to £5000 available. As all students are accepted on the course on the basis of their talent, the consideration for these awards is entirely based on financial circumstance. The intent of these grants is to enable those from financially disadvantaged backgrounds, an opportunity to attend. The decision to offer a grant will be taken by the Trustees of the charity, based on information requested from the applicant, to inform the awarding process.
George Peabody Performing Arts Grant (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic applicants)
The award has been named after the great Victorian Philanthropist, George Peabody, in recognition of our close relationship with Peabody, one of London’s oldest and largest housing associations.
There are several awards of £5000 available to assist BAME applicants from inner-city areas/low income backgrounds that would not otherwise be able to benefit from our training. Applicants in need of greater assistance may also be able to apply for a general LSMT Grant in addition to this specific fund.
The Fiona Stephenson Award
A grant of £3000 for a talented female applicant originating from within the county of Tyne and Wear. The intent of this grant is to support individuals with long standing family ties to this area, and who would otherwise be unable to attend due to financial constraints.
Additional - LSMT administered Funding
The school regularly distributes funding on behalf of four grant giving charitable organisations. LSMT is entrusted to select the recipients of the awards.
The amount of these awards varies annually. Should you be successful in obtaining a place at the school, if you fulfill the criteria stipulated by the relevant Foundation or Trust, LSMT will automatically submit you for any support available.
