Early bird deposit payment scholarship
There will be 150 scholarships of £1,000, paid as a fee discount, for new students applying from an international country if you pay your deposit of £2,500 by the end of March 2019 if you are studying a pre-sessional English course or by the end of April 2019 if you are studying a degree course.
If you receive an early bird deposit payment, you will also receive a further discount of 4% because you will have paid your fees for your course in full before the end of the enrolment period.
To be eligible for this scholarship you must:
- Pay your deposit by the above deadlines and pay your tuition fees in full by the end of the enrolment period of your course.
- For 2019 entry there are 150 scholarships available to the first students who pay their deposit before the deadline date.
Gifted student scholarship
There will be a limited number scholarships of £2,000, paid as a fee discount, for new students applying to a degree course from an international country who are considered to be gifted.
You will be judged on the quality of your application, portfolio/audition, previous experience, qualifications and interview performance, where applicable. Selectors will make a recommendation that the candidate is eligible for a ‘gifted’ scholarship. In addition to academic/creative merit, you must have met and accepted your offer, and paid your deposit of £2,500 by the end of May 2019.
If you are selected for a gifted scholarship you will be asked to submit a statement about why you think you are eligible for it by the end of May. A panel will meet in June and confirm the 60 students that will receive the scholarship.
These are fee discount schemes and not cash awards.
Discounts are only available to new international students at UCA and not current students or alumni.
You may be awarded both of the above two scholarships up to a maximum of £2,000 in total.
If you have been awarded an Early bird deposit scholarship you will only receive £1,000 Gifted scholarship, to give a maximum of £2,000 combined award for both scholarships.
For both of these scholarships there is also a further discount of 4% off the already discounted fees if you pay your fees in full before the end of the enrolment period for your course.
For this course, you can get a progression discount of 10% and an early payment discount of 4% off the fees for the first year of the course you are progressing to.
