What happens next

When you submit this form, you will receive an automated confirmation - if you do not receive confirmation, it is unlikely that your application has been received and you will need to re-submit.

Processing applications and checking elder's references usually takes a couple of weeks. Once you have received confirmation of your place at the Academy, your fees for the academic year are payable. To benefit from the early bird fee of £350, you will need to ensure that you have made payment by Friday 9 August. Please be aware that if you miss the early-bird, costs will increase to £500 for the year and also, that your place is not guaranteed until your fees have been paid.
