"The experience exceeded all expectations. Elena has become very motivated musically and has also improved her English."

The Ingenium Academy is an English speaking music school. We provide our non-native English speaking students with an incredible opportunity to immerse themselves in an English speaking environment and to improve the quality and fluency of their English language skills. We take care to support our non-native English speaking students and help them to develop their linguistic skills.
"This has been Katrina's most valuable musical experience ever...to be in an atmosphere with students and mentors who share her passion for music (and other things as well) was very special."

The Ingenium Trust is our partner charity, offering support to students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds who do not have the means to meet the summer school fees. The Trust award a number of bursaries each year, and also offer help and advice if you are looking to fundraise in order to support your summer at the Ingenium Academy.
Bursaries are means-tested and are awarded on musical merit to students from lower income families. Please visit ingeniumtrust.org/bursaries for more information about bursaries and eligibility, and if you would like to be considered for a bursary this summer, or would like any help or advice with fundraising then please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive an application form and further information.
Please note that we are only able to consider bursary applications made alongside your main application.
Every student will be met upon arrival at the airport or train station in London and accompanied to Winchester by a member of our pastoral team who will show them around our campus, introduce them to the other students and help them to settle in. We ensure that each student feels secure and comfortable from the moment they arrive.
The United Kingdom exited the European Union on 31 January 2020, and has now entered an 11-month transition period. During this period the UK effectively remains in the EU's customs union and single market and continues to obey EU rules.
Applicants from the EU should be reassured that for this summer, nothing will change - you will not need a Visa to enter the UK, and can travel to us as normal.
