A helping hand
Fourth Monkey is proud to be able to offer financial aid to students who would not be able access our training without our support. Every offer of a place on one of our courses is based on talent. Therefore we assign scholarships to those who need assistance most by means testing, based on household income, amount of savings and extenuating circumstances. Scholarships can be applied for after receiving an offer of a place but do feel free to seek our advice about scholarships before applying by emailing the Admissions Team.
