Fees and Scholarships

A fee of €160 for the in-person and €125 for the virtual courses will apply. If you are successfully selected you will be contacted regarding fee payment after an offer has been made.

Due to popular demand and a limited number of places, not all applicants will receive a place. 

We have a limited number of scholarships, based on economic circumstances, available for students to attend the Youth Academy free of charge.

If you have a medical card you are eligible to apply for a scholarship. Please apply via the online application form by uploading proof of your medical card details. You can take a photo/scan of your card and upload to the form. 25% of the total number of places we have on offer are allocated on a scholarship basis, so not all who apply for a scholarship will be successful.
