International students

The Academy may be able to assist international students towards the costs of their fees.

The Academy is able to make substantial provision in scholarship and bursary support to students on the basis of both merit and need.


Bursaries are awarded to eligible postgraduate and international students. Candidates are asked in January to complete a Financial Assistance form outlining their financial situation for the following academic year. Funds vary from year to year but the Academy always tries to make available as much money as it can. Financial Assistance forms are sent to eligible candidates automatically.

Hardship funds

In cases of extreme financial hardship that may arise during the course of the academic year, the Academy has limited funds available. Applications for this funding must be directed to the office of the Deputy Principal after you have enrolled.

Further information

For more funding websites see our pages on Funding Sources and Other Useful Links and Funding by Country.

We recommend that international students contact either their own education ministry and/or British Council office for details of possible awards for study abroad.

Information for non-UK students about working in the UK is available in the Student Finance section of our International Students page.
