DTS Financial Policy
This Financial Policy is designed to explain the financial costs of attending a DTS and how that money is spent. It also gives a
breakdown of when fees become payable.
WHAT THE FEES COVER
The DTS fees cover the cost of tuition, board and lodging during the lecture and debrief phase. They cover:
Student Registration with the University of the Nations
Speaker expenses (travel and a small honorarium)
Food for all meals
Internal rental costs for the use of base accommodation and teaching rooms
Travel costs for midweek and mid-term outreaches
Contribution towards the running of the training office
Contribution towards the cost of one pastoral visit per outreach location
Contribution towards our Sponsor Trainee Program
APPROXIMATE OVERALL COSTS – (as of May 2020 applicable for schools 6 months or less. Fees may vary.)
Application fee: £25
Lecture Phase: £2000
Outreach Phase: £1700 (guideline costs, not including the airfare)
Total: approx. £3725 (does not include any airfare or UK Visa costs)
In addition to the above you should allow some money for leisure, personal needs, toiletries, etc.
SUMMARY - DUE DATES FOR PAYMENT
Administration fee - £25 non-refundable deposit due with application (Covers the cost of processing your application.)
Registration fee - £200 non-refundable Room deposit due when acceptance letter is received (Confirms your acceptance and reserves your room). This amount counts towards Lecture Phase fee balance.
Balance of Lecture phase fee due on arrival.
Outreach fees – We appreciate if the outreach fee is paid by week 4, though it is due in full before the commencement of outreach. YWAM will aid in the selection of flights for outreach. Payment for transport to the outreach location (such as flights) and visa fees will be in addition to the outreach fee, and will be payable upon booking – typically around week 5.
COSTS FOR CHILDREN
Fees for children are based mainly on food costs but also include a nominal amount for utilities.
Youth With A Mission is a faith mission. Therefore we are open to prayerfully considering applications from those who
through unemployment or other circumstances are lacking the total finances. If, together with the church, we felt
it right that they are to attend the DTS we would work out a financial scheme on an individual basis. Without such
an arrangement in place before the school starts we are unable to accommodate students who do not have their
fees in full. Please do not hesitate to contact us if this applies to you.
ALL FEES ARE QUOTED IN POUNDS STERLING ONLY. Overseas applicants may pay the equivalent in US/Canadian/Australian dollars or Swiss Francs but will be liable for bank charges incurred.
