Funding for training to teach music
If you’re interested in training to teach music, you could be eligible for a £9,000 tax-free training bursary. Alternatively, you could choose to train on a salaried course. If you’re on a non-salaried teacher training course, there are three types of funding available. Depending on your circumstances, you could receive all three.
1. Tax-free bursaries
As a trainee music teacher, you could be eligible for a £9,000 bursary if you have a first, 2:1, 2:2, Master’s or PhD.
Once you know if you’ll be receiving a bursary or scholarship, you can find out how and when you'll receive your tax-free funding.
2. Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan
You could apply for a Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan to cover tuition fees and help with living costs, which is up to:
- £9,250 Tuition Fee Loan to pay for your course
- £11,354 Maintenance Loan for living costs
3. Additional financial support
If you have children or a disability, extra funding is available. For instance, you could get:
- up to £164.70 a week (1 child) or up to £282.36 a week (2 or more children) Childcare Grant
- up to £1,669 per year Parents’ Learning Allowance
- Child Tax Credits
- Disabled Students’ Allowance
