A bursary is a reduction in annual tuition fees granted by the Principal on the basis of financial need. They are awarded subject to the merit of each application. This is conducted on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Principal, within the constraints of the annual budget as set out by the College Board. Bursaries apply to tuition fees only. 

Bursaries are awarded for up to one year and are subject to an annual review process. Each request is assessed against varied criteria. 

For information regarding bursary applications, please contact the College Registrar:
