School fees

School of Communication Arts is much cheaper than a three year degree.


The course runs for 18-months (11-months in the school and then roughly 6-months in industry placements), but you will get more done than on a 3-year course. We pack each day with briefs, masterclasses from industry legends and book crits, our students work an average of 50-hours a week, which saves them money and prepares them to hit the ground running when they get their first job in adland.

With a ratio of 36 students and over 1000 mentors, the contact hours available are unprecedented. Our mentors come from the 100+ agencies that support our school, which means our students build up a network with industry leaders who can give them a job.


Fees for students starting in September 2019 are £5,500 per term.

Each school year consists of three terms meaning the total cost of the course is £16,500.

At the end of your school year, you will receive approximately six months of agency placements.  We expect you to be paid a London Living Wage during most of these placements.


But we understand money can be challenging, so head over to our funding page to find out how you can make SCA a reality.
