In recognition of the outstanding talent and achievements of many of our overseas applicants, we are pleased to be offering our SMART Scholarship.
For 2023/24 (2023 September and 2024 January intake):
SMART Scholarships are available for full-time, campus-based international fee-paying students for September 2023 and January 2024 entry. For this entry, the SMART scholarship represents a £3,000 discount that will be applied to every year of your tuition fees. The scholarship is awarded as part of the admissions process and is based on your application to study; there is no separate form to complete.

- Are receiving full or partial funding for your studies from a sponsor or other scholarship provider
