Application Fee Waivers

Following a successful pilot scheme last year, the Guildhall School is pleased to offer 170 application fee waivers for undergraduate programmes (2017/18 entry). If you would like more information on application fee waivers or you have questions about eligibility, please contact our Widening Participation Officer Hazel Robertson.

Application fee waiver referrals are subject to eligibility requirements, and we regret that we cannot offer the scheme to applicants who do not meet them. Here are a few suggestions to help you raise funding to cover the cost of making an application:

  • Your school (including individual departments) may have some funding
  • You may be able to find sponsorship. Try your local newspaper, school alumni, key music/drama/theatre people within your area
  • Organise a ‘benefit’ concert or performance with friends or a local group
