Apply

Once you've received an offer to study at UAL, the ‘my funding’ page on your applicant portal will be updated to include application forms for scholarships you may be eligible for.

If you submit a scholarship application, we will email you after the deadline has passed to let you know if you have been successful.

Application deadlines

  • For courses starting in January 2022: Friday 15 October 2021

Receiving payment

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

For postgraduate degrees taught over multiple years, the £5,000 award may be divided and applied equally throughout the course.

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.
