Fee Details

The programme is delivered by our international team of highly experienced leadership development and education professionals. They provide their services on a pro-bono basis, meaning WYSE can offer full-tuition scholarships to all selected participants.

Along with the coaching which is offered after the programme, this in-kind donation of services from the staff team has been valued at over £7500 per participant. The final cost to participants is £990 to cover food, accommodation, and administration.

As part of our efforts to include as many young leaders as possible from diverse backgrounds, WYSE provides a bursary scheme for those in most need to support the costs of their programme fees.

The bursary scheme is highly competitive and only covers a proportion of the £990 programme fee (normally ranging between 20% and 45% of the programme fee).
