The Academy prides itself on being able to accept students purely on the basis of their potential and talent, and we’ll try to help deserving candidates as much as possible. The amount available for scholarships and bursaries varies from year to year, with some funding coming from the Academy’s own endowments and the rest secured through the generosity of individuals, companies, trusts and foundations.

Students should also seek government support where possible. In particular, UK and eligible EU undergraduate students should look into tuition fee loans and, if applicable, maintenance loans. Similarly, UK and eligible EU Master’s and PhD students can apply for government loans to assist with the costs of study. Details of how to apply can be found here. EU students are normally eligible if they began their course in 2020. For courses starting in 2021, the UK Government has not yet issued new EU eligibility guidance.

There are various sources of funding available and we want everyone to feel like studying at the Academy is a possibility.
