Accessibility, fees and funding 

We are looking for a company who represent the diversity of Britain’s Youth. We celebrate individuals and do not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, sexuality or disability. If you require any assistance on the day or have any access requirements please don’t hesitate to contact us before your audition or interview on     
We strongly believe in offering equal opportunities and pride ourselves on accessibility. Bursaries are available on request to help cover the cost of an audition and course fees to those most in need. The NYT Bursary Fund is high in demand so we ask you only to apply for a bursary if you are experiencing financial hardship. They are means tested and will be offered to part cover transport, course fees or accommodation costs should you be successful in gaining a place. To apply for a bursary to cover the cost on an audition please complete an application form

Every year young people fundraise the full amount of their audition and course fees in order to take part.Click here for information and advice on fundraising.
