Scholarship Description
The University of the Arts London International Graduate Scholarships aim to promote postgraduate study. These awards will be offered to international students only (this excludes students classified as European and British for fee purposes) with the ability and potential to make an exceptional contribution to the worlds of art, design, fashion, communication and performance. UAL encourages applications from those who feel they will benefit from further study to realise their full potential.

The scholarships will be awarded to carefully selected students accepted to study on specific MA programmes at the University of the Arts London, for enrolment in academic year 2013/2014. If you apply for an International Graduate Scholarship, but are accepted to study on a course that is not in the ‘eligible courses list’ for this scholarship, your application will be discarded.

To be eligible to apply for a University of the Arts London International Graduate Scholarship, applicants must:
  • be assessed as an “international” student (paying the international fee band)
  • hold an offer for one of the eligible full-time MA courses attached to the scholarships
  • be an undergraduate student expecting to graduate with an Honours bachelors degree from a Higher Education institution by 31 July 2013.
  • be a graduate, having already gained a good bachelors degree from a Higher Education institution
OR (for applicants without a bachelors degree)
  • be able to demonstrate substantial equivalent and applicable experience.

Scholarship benefits
Each International Graduate Scholarship is worth the tuition fees of the selected MA course. Tuition fees will be paid directly to the University. Successful candidates must bring their award letter to enrolment.

Requirements of Scholarship Holders:
Applicants must enrol on their programme in the same academic year for which they have applied for funding. If any applicant is unable to do this for any reason, the scholarship will be withdrawn.

Scholarship holders are expected to attend all timetabled classes and tutorials, except in periods of absence due to illness. Attendance will be monitored and any student with an unacceptable attendance record risks termination of their Scholarship.

Award holders are expected to attend a small number of College and University promotional events. Such events may occur during and/or after completion of the award holder’s course.

The University will terminate the award if registration lapses on any grounds, other than temporary suspension of study due to extenuating circumstances. These circumstances must be drawn to the attention of the relevant course director through formal procedures and upheld by the College Extenuating Circumstances Panel.

Method of Application
The application form can be downloaded from the official University’s website (link to it is below).

Students on courses with portfolio requirements must provide a copy of their portfolio with their scholarship application form. UAL realizes you may have already submitted a portfolio with your course application however portfolios are often returned to students or destroyed so you must submit a new one with your scholarship application. UAL will only accept portfolios in CD Rom format or via a web link if you have your own website. UAL does not accept emailed portfolio files.
