One of the most daunting parts of undertaking a course is often the thought of finding the money to pay for it. The theatre school's fees are not as much as you might think and with the total number of taught hours you receive work out at approximately £9 per hour.

With other foundation type courses asking anywhere from £6,000 - £10,000 per year we are confident that the STS's fees are both fair and competative. However, we encourage potential students to think carefully about how they will pay their fees throughout the course. Remember that there may be other costs involved towards the end of your course such as subscriptions to Spotlight, CastingCall Pro and Equity as well as any research or reading materials you may want to invest in.


COURSE FEES 2018 - 2019



The most popular way to pay your fees is termly. You will be required to pay a terms fees as a deposit for your place on the course which will then be deducted from your total fee.


If you are able to pay for your course all in one go you will be eligible for a 10% discount wich will reduce your fees to £1,350 for the year.

Payment Plans*

In some circumstances the school will be able to help you with a payment plan that will spread to cost over the duration of the course. *Please note this is only for students experiencing financial hardship and is at the STS's discretion.


For individuals who are able to prove a low income and continued financial hardship there are ways of applying for bursaries. Please note that these bursaries are not provided by the school therefore evidence of low income and financial hardship will have to be provided.
