If you were offered a place on a qualifying full-time taught masters course in 2015/16 but chose to defer your place to start in the academic year of 2016/17 instead, you can apply for a UAL Vice-Chancellor’s Postgraduate Scholarship. You must meet all of the eligibility criteria and your deferral request to start your course in 2016/17 must have been accepted by UAL.
If you were offered a UAL Vice-Chancellor’s Postgraduate Scholarship in 2015/16 but chose not to accept the award, you can re-apply for a 2016/17 scholarship if you meet the eligibility criteria. Please be aware that because you were offered an award in 2015/16 this does not guarantee you will also be a successful applicant in 2016/17. You will be subject to the same application and allocation process as all other eligible applicants.
Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis from the acknowledgement date of your completed scholarship application and supporting evidence.
If your qualifying full-time masters course is due to start in January 2017, your completed UAL Vice-Chancellor’s Postgraduate Scholarship application form and supporting evidence must be submitted by 4pm, Monday 31 October 2016.
If your qualifying full-time masters course is due to start in September/October 2016 the deadline has already passed. The deadline was Wednesday 1 June 2016.

If you are awarded a UAL Vice-Chancellor’s UK or EU Postgraduate Scholarship, this may be used in conjunction with external sources of funding subject to the eligibility terms of those awards. For example you may be able to apply for a £10,000 repayable loan to help fund your studies with the Postgraduate Loan Scheme offered by Student Finance England.
Once you've applied for a qualifying course starting in January 2017 we'll send you an email the next morning with details on how (if you meet the given eligibility criteria) you can apply for a UAL Vice-Chancellor's UK and EU Postgraduate Scholarship award. Please note that we'll need to have received your course application by 11.59pm on Sunday 30 October 2016 in order to have time to send you a UAL Vice-Chancellor's UK and EU Postgraduate Scholarships online application form.
Due to high demand we have already received more applications for a UAL Vice-Chancellor's UK and EU Postgraduate Scholarship than we have awards to give. As a result we've begun a waiting list. Someone's position on the waiting list will be determined by the date they submitted a completed scholarship application. Should someone who has been allocated an award not be able to take it, the award will be reallocated to the applicant at the top of the waiting list.
