Hardship Funding

UAL runs an Access to Learning Fund, this comes in the form of money which doesn’t have to be paid back. This fund is available to all UAL students on any undergraduate or postgraduate course at University of the Arts London. You can find out more about this hardship fund on the UAL website.

Access to Learning Fund

NB: Following lobbying from Arts SU the fund is now available to international students and UAL has committed an additional £250,000 per year to the fund for the next 3 years. UAL has also committed an additional £500,000 to the fund to help students financially during Covid-19.

External Scholarships

We've compiled a list of external scholarships, not linked to Arts SU or UAL. We can't advise on these and take no responsibility for their processes but they may be worthwhile exploring if you're not eligible for UAL Sholarships/Hardship Funding or if they don't meet your needs.
