Let's talk


REAL School's mission is to inspire and empower the next generation to dream and build a beautiful, equitable and sustainable world. To deliver on this mission, we need to bring together a culturally and socio-economically diverse group of bright young minds. Our long term aim hence is to make our education available to all eligible applicants, however, we can't afford this just yet.


We are constantly working on securing more sources for scholarships. Until then, please see our current fees and tuition assistance opportunities below.


REAL School is a not-for-profit institution.
