To apply, you will need to fill out our bursary form below or alternatively, you can make a short video of yourself answering the questions and email it to with ‘Bursary application’ as the subject.

Please note applying for a bursary does not guarantee you a place on the course, as we will select the applicant who we think would benefit most greatly from the course based on all the applications we receive. We will contact you with the outcome of your application.
