SC&T Classes 2022

SC&T'S Adult Autumn term starts 26th September 2022

We're back LIVE !!

We're really excited to let you know SC&T are running a 10 week face to face term starting the week beginning 26th September 2022

Sign-up if OPEN!

What's happening?

Classes will run for 10 weeks on either a Monday or Tuesday evening starting at 7pm, face to face, in the MacRobert Building on the Aberdeen University campus. In support of the live, face to face tuition, we will continue to use the  the fantastic Thinkific platform where you can access all the lesson material (music/ recordings/ videos etc.).

A small number of classes will be both face to face AND broadcast live online. This is a first for us and we will be working hard to make sure that the experience is great for all learners whether present in person or joining online.

Class times?

Classes will run from 7pm - 9pm. with a short break for teas/coffee/chat in the middle.

How much will it cost?

We have kept the fees at £100 for the full 10 week block + concert. This can be paid in one lump sum of £100 for the term or 3 x monthly instalments of £33.33

You can choose what payment option you prefer when you sign up on Thinkific. 

Over the last few years, SC&T has actively taken steps to ensure that classes are accessible to as many people as possible.  In the past we have offered concessions to specific groups such as those in receipt of a pension or other benefits, as well as sourcing funding for a limited number of free places.  In light of the impact of Covid over the last year we decided to review our approach to ensure that our support is more targeted to include individuals who would be unable to access classes at the full fee.  As a result, we have decided to move away from a standard concession rate for specific groups and instead, try to provide support to those who need this most and who would otherwise be unable to join our classes.

If you feel that your financial circumstances make it difficult for to pay the full fee we would encourage you to contact the office@scottishculture.org and we will consider a reduction. We will not require detailed financial information. We also have a limited number of free places which you may be considered for.

On the other hand, if you would like to give a little bit more, you can also Donate to SC&T.

What if I can't manage all 10 weeks?

In those classes where the lessons are being recorded the video and course materials will be available for you to use through the Thinkific platform if you miss a class.
