Hi I’m Josh, I’m 18 year’s old and am honoured and privileged to have been offered a place at Arts Educational Schools London on the 3 year BA (Hons) Musical Theatre Degree to commence in September this year.
Arts Ed is one of the most respected and prestigious performing arts schools in the country for Musical Theatre with people auditioning from all over the world. I am so lucky to have earned one of the 50 places out of over 2,000 that have auditioned. Students who graduate from Arts Ed go on to work in a variety of different roles in performing arts, with a significant number going straight into work in the West End.
The yearly fee for attending Arts Ed is in excess of £14,000 and I can only access a student loan of £6,000 towards this – leaving a hefty shortfall. This is without funds for moving to London. My parents are going to do all they can to support me but this will place a tremendous burden on the family finances. I will be working to support myself, and am in the process of securing a job, but I would be grateful if you felt able to make a contribution, however small, to help support me and my future.
I can send updates of my progress and would be more than happy to keep in touch with anyone who would like to know more.
I am determined to make a success of my opportunity and will work incredibly hard to succeed.
Huge thanks in advance for taking the time to read my story.
