UAL has launched a new scholarships programme, including its prestigious Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships, which will enable more than one hundred postgraduate students to study a full-time Masters with up to 50% of their tuition fees waived.
With the total value of scholarship awards standing at more than £1 million, the programme represents a significant initiative by the university aimed at breaking down the financial barriers in the way of talented arts graduates, with scholarships offered for more than 75 postgraduate Masters courses.
UAL hosts the largest postgraduate arts and design community in Europe and draws together six Colleges with international reputations in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts: Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins, Chelsea College of Arts, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion, and Wimbledon College of Arts.
The University is also encouraging students to make use of the Postgraduate Support Scheme (PSS) launched by the Government in the last Autumn Statement. This comes in the form of £10,000 awards available in 2015-2016.
Vice-Chancellor of UAL, Nigel Carrington, said: “This range of scholarships will give talented and deserving students the opportunity to further their creative ambitions and explore their artistic practice. We look forward to welcoming the recipients to UAL.”
