Funding – Assisted Places Scheme

‚ÄčLeith School of Art is an independent institution and does not receive state funding. The School is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. We are committed to providing access to our courses from people of all backgrounds, experience and aspiration. Core materials are included in the fees, and the courses all have a high staff/student ratio.

We believe in supporting students as much as possible, and this also includes financial support. With this in mind we have an Assisted Places Scheme, which is funded from our supporters and a wide range of trusts and foundations. 

Should you wish to be considered for an Assisted Place you must first apply and be accepted on a year-long course. Normally the maximum amount awarded is up to 50% of the tuition fees but can be more in exceptional circumstances.

There is no deadline for submitting your application but it is advisable to complete and return at your earliest convenience as there is a limited amount of funding available.  

If you have any questions, or would like further details about the Assisted Places Scheme please contact the School.

Please note students are not eligible for state funding or student loans due to the School’s independent status.
