Note Regarding US students for 2019 to 2020

A Registration Fee of £150* is payable with acceptances to offers made on all our courses. The Registration Fee payment is not required from NSCD students progressing from the BA to an MA course. Full details will be provided within any offer letters that are issued. Registration fees are not normally refundable unless you exercise your right to cancel your contract under the Consumer Contract (Information, Cancellation and Additional Payments) Regulations 2013 within 14 days of submitting the NSCD Acceptance Form.
A Tuition Fee Deposit of £1500 is payable by all postgraduate students unless you are a UK/EU student who will be paying tuition fees through a Student Loan; in which case you must provide proof of your application no later than third week of July. International and self-paying students are required to pay this tuition fee deposit by no later than third week of July. Tuition fee deposits are not normally refundable unless you exercise your right to cancel your contract under the Consumer Contract (Information, Cancellation and Additional Payments) Regulations 2013 within 14 days of submitting the NSCD Acceptance Form. The deposit will be deducted from the final instalment of your tuition fees.
Many students at NSCD supplement their income by undertaking part-time work. This is fairly easy to come by in Leeds, and some work for students is offered by the School itself.
Northern School of Contemporary Dance does not have student accommodation connected to the school but we do facilitate a House Hunting Day in June and provide support and useful contacts for you to use when arranging your accommodation. Find out more about Accommodation in Leeds.
Our Alumni go on to work with a wide range of companies. Many go freelance or set up their own company.
