Apply Now

Applications for our February/March courses are now open. Click on the "Apply Now" link below to be brought to the application form


These courses are only open to those who applied in September but were unsuccessful in getting a place.

The Youth Academy is always very heavily oversubscribed. We receive almost 4 applications for every place we have on offer so not everyone that applies will be successful in getting a place. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis with no excpetions made.

Please note: 1200 applications were received last September for 320 places. Some people who applied at 9.03am on the day applications opened were not successful in securing a place.

Application process:

1. Complete the online application form

* All fields need to be filled in on the application form (type something in every box). You will receive a confirmation email when your form goes through.
