For all courses Urdang looks for candidates with talent, ambition and personality who are committed and hardworking. Potential and Personality are as equally valued as previous experience and attainment.
The Urdang Academy is one of the leading training providers in the UK and is subsequently part of the Government’s DaDA scheme, administered by the EFA (Education Funding Agency). Urdang is allocated a specific number of awards for students each year.
Following a review of the DaDA scheme in 2012, the government has confirmed that from 2013:
For example, a student whose annual household income is under £30,000 will pay no fees for their course. If their household income is under £21,000 they will also receive up to a maximum of £5,185 per annum in a grant to help with living costs. Details of the levels of support are available here
The Trustees of The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation fund 10 new Musical Theatre course scholarships each year at renowned musical theatre colleges throughout the UK.
These scholarships are known as ‘The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation Scholarships’ and are awarded by the schools as part of the audition/selection process on the combined basis of merit and financial need. Please note students will be means-tested for scholarship eligibility.
Scholarships will be awarded for course fees only and no maintenance grants will be given.
The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation is advised by David Grindrod in the selection of scholarship courses and students.
Urdang also operates an internal fee reduction scheme which takes into account both employability potential and financial circumstance.
