We are unable to accept late applications. Any incomplete applications may not be considered. If you apply in Round 1 and don’t hear back from us by the advertised decision date, your application will be considered in Round 2.

Receiving payment

If your application is successful you will be sent an award letter via email and if you want to accept the scholarship you will be required to accept on your UAL Portal.

Your tuition fees will be raised directly to your fees account in the first year of your course.

For those studying Online, part-time or extended full time courses where your scholarship award may be more than your Year 1 course fee, the surplus will be used towards your Year 2 fees.

Additional information

Scholarships are awarded by a UAL selection panel, who make their decision based on the evidence provided in your application.

If you have successful applications for more than one UAL award or scholarship, you must choose which of them you would like to receive, as you are only able to hold one at a time.
