In recognition of the outstanding talent and achievements of many of our overseas applicants, we are pleased to announce our new SMART scholarship.

The SMART scholarship represents a £2000 discount that will be applied to the first 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. Successful applicants will be notified in their offer letter.
