Cost & Finances
The Short Course Programme is supported by Arts Council England, through a three-year grant to develop sector leaders. To be eligible for a subsidised place (see below for fees), applicants must be working in England (normally in the arts, museums and/or libraries sector) and be committed to developing their career as a cultural leader in England.
The subsidised cost of the course is:
£950 + VAT for people who work as individuals or those in organisations of 1-15 employees
£1500 + VAT for those in organisations employing 16 - 199 employees
£2000 + VAT for those in organisations with 200+ employees
Wellcome Trust supported places for leaders working in England with a track record of engaging the public with Science, Health or Wellbeing follow the same fee structure.
Please note that we offer a number of bursaries, and you can read more about these in the Bursaries section below.

The full cost of the course is £4,500 + VAT. There may be a limited number of unsubsidised places on each course, although priority will be given to those who meet the criteria for a subsidised place.
