Anyone! Like all education there is options to study by government means or privately. We are though an SQA Centre of excellence providing further education since 2011. As a specialised private college of performing arts our fee’s reflect this. Our Fee’s are heavily subsidised as we are a charitable organization and want to be fair and encouraging of young people to study in an industry that is outside the academic terms. As creatives we encourage everyone to consider a career in performing arts, knowing that scholarships may be the only way to do so. Apply Today for your first step to the career of your dreams.

e.g. You are a UK resident of 5 years+, 16 years old and currently receive government help to attend school and enjoy drama and singing and want to leave school to study further. Upon successful audition and receiving a full-time place, you would be considered for a Jazzart scholarship, and a full or part funded scholarship would be awarded.   

e.g. You are 18 years old and have attend a performing arts school for weekly dance classes since you were 4 years old and would like to study further but can’t afford to pay any more than you currently do.
