The Iver Make-up Academy is the only media make-up course to be awarded the BAFTA Scholarship Scheme.
Students wishing to study with The Iver Make-Up Academy on our 30 Week Advanced Certificate Course can now apply for a BAFTA Scholarship.
If you are interested in pursuing this, more information can be found at http://www.bafta.org/supporting-talent/scholarships/uk-programme
To be eligible for the bursary which is up to a maximum of £12,000. You first need to be offered a place on our advanced course. If you are granted a scholarship then this will be paid directly to The Iver Make-up Academy.
The Government will pay the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards. You will then need to start repaying the loan as you would any other commercial loan product. These loans can be applied for 8 weeks before the course start date. You can use the loan to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses. You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries. As the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, you should make sure you have investigated all the funding options that may be open to you to ensure you take an informed decision about whether the loan is right for you.
Our PCDL Registration Number which is 21482 needs to be quoted in any correspondence.

Payment of a 20% Deposit secures a place on any course with the balance due 6 weeks prior to the course start date.

The details of these plans vary according to the course taken – Please contact us for further payment plan details.

Katy - I chose to wait a year before I started my course so I could work and save as much as possible. I managed to save a good proportion of the fee and the rest I borrowed from my parents. I have subsequently repaid them as I have been lucky enough to work steadily since graduating.
Lilly- I used the IMA payment plan. It was so simple. I also found some amazing interest free credit card deals on https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/borrowing/
Eleanor- I applied for a personal loan to help fund my training. I spent a lot of time researching the best options and feel confident that I found the best deal.
