Installation view of Schools Show 2012. The Royal Academy meets the cost of tuition fees for all students accepted onto the course, which means Schools can offer places based on the creative potential of the candidates who apply – a principle upon which the Royal Academy Schools was founded in 1768.
The Schools is able to offer some additional financial support in the form of maintenance and materials grants. However, the cost of living in London is high, and students should expect to self-fund the majority of their living and working expenses. Many students work part-time in the evenings and at weekends.
In certain cases, some applicants may be eligible to receive bursary funding from their home government or other funding bodies. Students accepted onto the programme will be asked to make a formal disclosure of such funding.
