Unless otherwise specified the course fees published on this website are already inclusive of registration fee. Currently we do not charge administrative fees for applications.
If the course is paid in full before its start, there are no additional charges.
Option A : One single payment as advertised
One payment for the full amount of the course fee (single course, Professional Certificate or Diploma) as advertised on the website of London School of Sound.
Option B : One payment per term
One single payment per term: for courses comprising of two or more modules, you can pay one module at a time – effectively one term at a time. For example, enrolling on the Professional Certificate in Music Production starting in September and terminating in June, you can pay for the first module (MP101) in August and the second module (MP151) in January.
There is a 8% additional charge with this option.
Mixed: Early Installments with no interest charge
If half of the course fee is paid one month before the start of the course, you can continue to pay the rest in installments without any additional interest charges. The initial payment can be spread over a number of months, as long as the total paid one month before the start of the course amounts to half of the total amount of your course fee. For example, if you are enrolling in a course that starts in February, you can start paying small amounts of money in August, September, October, etc. If the total paid before January is equal or greater than half of the amount due, the interest charges which would normally apply will be discounted.
Support for Learning: literally hundreds of links related to funding, divided by category.
The Meta Project: great source of funding advice and tips for musicians.
Career Development Loan
LSS has not renewed its participation in this scheme as it proved of little use and generally not advisable for anyone looking in to a career in the music industry.
If nothing else is available you might consider a loan from a private lender: you can find many listed and compared on this website.
The Prince's Trust is the first place to consider if you are under 30 and have an ambitious business plan. You could get the funding you require for your training and the equipment you need to buy after the course.
The course fee (or the first installment) must be paid one calendar month before the start of the course. Missing this deadline equals losing your place on that course and being automatically moved to the next available place (normally on the following term). See the courses’ Terms & Conditions for more details. London School of Sound reserves the right to refuse installment payment options without having to provide any explanations. Switching to a different payment plan from the one originally chosen may be possible, depending on the circumstances and at the sole discretion of the school’s board, and may incur in additional charges.
