Emil Dale Academy keeps fees for all our courses to a minimum. Our fees work out to around half the price similar courses with nearly double the contact hours. We also include private individual weekly singing lessons in your fees. We are not an elitist school and believe everybody should be given a chance to train with us if they audition successfully.
We offer payment plans which spread the costs over 10 months. Many of our students have successfully been granted funding from private companies to help support them at our College. Emil Dale does offer a small number scholarships himself - these are granted after successful audition and are means tested.
The skills funding agency fund around 12 hours a week for each student for the level 3 Extended Diploma in Musical Theatre ages 16-19. The fees you pay are for the additional "TOP UP" contact hours which Emil Dale provide under the private sector of the course (all the additional hours around the BTEC). This allows us to fill the course with all the additional contact hours in dancing, singing, acting and private singing lessons weekly.
Do not let funding put you off! Everyone should have the right to train.

2017 2 YEAR COURSE £1316 a term inclusive of VAT (£3950 annual)

Here at Emil Dale, we appreciate that this will be the first time that many students will be away from home so we give new students as much support as possible in finding housing; whether it be in a Emil Dale Academy student house or for some students who will be moving into host family accommodation.
EDA sets up a private EDA Facebook "accommodation page" which allows new students to be contacted by existing students with information on houses and rooms that are available. This private web page is also constantly updated by EDA with links to useful sites, contacts and potential housing.
The EDA Facebook page is a great forum for the students to speak with one another to form groups and also see what potential rooms may be available in existing EDA houses.
- Rent is approximately £80-100 a week (give or take depending on property)
