Bristol Old Vic Theatre School is able to award some full and partial bursaries which are available to support young people to participate in its youth groups and short courses.

All applications for bursary places will be considered and there are many criteria we use to assess applicants. These include, but are not limited to: applicants in financial hardship; disabled applicants; applicants from low areas of progression to higher education; applicants in care/care leavers or groups of people who are considered ‘hard to reach’.

Funding will be allocated on a case by case basis and applications for funding must be submitted by midnight on 12 June. We will review all applications on the 13 June and we will aim to get back to you that week with our decision.

As soon as I visited the School, I fell in love with the place. Perhaps it sounds a bit irrational, but sometimes you get a vibe - and you just know! BOVTS gave me all the tools I needed to prepare for a career as an actor. Sahir Mehta, MA Professional Acting, 2018
