Government-funded Dance and Drama Awards (DaDAs) will continue to be available in 2013/14 for new students starting courses as well as continuing learners. Awards for new students will, however, now be income assessed for both tuition fees and maintenance expenses on the basis of a national scale – with students from lower income families contributing less and those from higher income families contributing more. Arrangements for existing students who will be entering their second or third year of study in 2013 will remain unchanged until their courses have been completed.
EU students who are accepted on the basis of their DVD application and who wish to be considered for a Dance and Drama Award (funded place), MUST attend an audition in person.

Professional and Career Development Loans
Professional and Career Development Loans are bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning.
You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 to help support the cost of up to two years of learning (or three years if it includes one year's relevant unpaid practical work).
The loan can be used to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses and repayments will commence one month after training has been completed.
You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries.
Because the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, they should only be considered as an option once all other student funding options have been investigated.
For further information on financial assistance to support your learning, please visit www.direct.gov.uk/adultlearning or contact Careers Advice on 0800 100 900.
