Funding your course at Delamar Academy

Funding your course at Delamar Academy

Delamar Academy Funding is one of the most frequently Googled phrases we get. If it were not for the investment required to train here, we would be producing hundreds more graduates a year, maybe even thousands! Courses at Delamar are quite different from a classic academic course which involve purely reading and writing work, as we do not set essays, but instead our teaching focus is completely practical. Such practical courses require the use of expensive materials for classes taught by our specialist industry tutors, in our fantastic facilities. 


Delamar Academy is proud to now be a part of the BAFTA scholarship programme for 2019-2020. Our 1 Year Cert HE Professional Design Make-up Course is eligible for the BAFTA scholarship initiative, providing up to £12,000 towards their course fee. For students who wish to train here in September, you must apply before Tuesday 28 May 2019. More information about this scheme is detailed here. 


Delamar Academy Funding – What your course fee covers

Firstly, the excellent training from 10am – 4pm each day, in the light and airy classrooms of the Academy, based at the prestigious Ealing Studios.  All the materials, work stations, student’s kits and tutor time is covered. We also factor in the cost of professional photo shoots to our 7 Week Summer Course, Advanced Complete Make-up Artist and Cert HE Professional Makeup Design course. For graduates of all Delamar Academy Courses, our free aftercare is often considered as “priceless” – and not factored into the fees, but an added benefit of training here. We place graduates on the industry’s top films and TV productions, often within weeks of graduation – Star Wars being a top example, Downton Abbey and Strictly Come Dancing are all productions we have supplied new fledgling graduates onto, changing their lives and kick-starting their make-up careers. Obviously, the courses that prepare students best for these placements are the Complete Make-up Artist, Advanced Complete Make-up Artist and 1 Year Cert HE Professional Make-up Design course. Funding your course at Delamar Academy is an investment in career opportunity, mentoring and of course, the first class training. The Delamar Academy Agency is open to all graduates, for free and we have frequently provided opportunities for a decade after the graduate’s course has finished. 


We also host some of the most coveted Masterclasses in the industry, which are free for all our students and graduates who wish to attend. Brands like NARS, Kevyn Aucoin, By Terry, Bobbi Brown and Delilah have all come into the Academy to provide generous complimentary gifts and excellent masterclasses. Aside from luxury brands, we have also hosted an incredible array of artists and top industry professionals like Caroline Hirons, Mary Greenwell, Krisytan Mallett, Hannah Martin, Tina Earnshaw,  Sangeet Prabhaker and many more. You can read about our Masterclasses here.

  • Firstly, it is important to let all prospective students know that we accept payment in instalments. We do not need a lump sum and allow our students to pay over a period that suits them. This is the easiest way to break up the cost and is how many of our students pay. You can enrol on a course in 2 years time, for example, and pay in small amounts before the course starts. 
  • Credit Card Loans – We accept credit cards. Further details on the loans and credit cards available can be found on a range of websites, including
  • Private funding – many students who come to Delamar Academy have funded their course with savings or family contributions. Every year we have many students who have saved-up for a long time to come here 
  • Princes Trust – The Princes Trust provides funding up to £500, which can really help especially on a short course
  • Eligible participants can apply to Creative Skillset for a bursary of up to 80% for freelancers under the Film Bursary Scheme.
