Bursary Programme


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

We receive a large number of applications for financial aid each year. 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.
