Bursary Programme


Students seeking financial aid may apply for a bursary award at Immerse Education, which could result in a maximum 100% reduction in programme fees.

We receive a huge number of applications for financial aid each year, therefore only a small percentage of students are successful. Two categories of bursary are available, the first for students aged 13-15 and the second for students aged 16-18.

Bursary applications for 2024 have come to a close. The opportunity to apply for a funded place on our 2025 programmes opens in October.
