The Government has announced additional financial support for students starting postgraduate study at Trinity Laban in 2015/16.
In all, at least thirteen £5,000 bursaries will be made available. Each bursary will be matched by £5,000 from Trinity Laban itself, meaning that at least thirteen students could benefit from a £10,000 contribution towards their studies.
This funding – part of a nationwide initiative administered by HEFCE – is intended “to support under-represented students to progress to masters programmes”; more information will be available in January about the exact eligibility criteria. The scheme bridges the gap until new postgraduate student loans are made available for 2016/17.
Trinity Laban Principal Professor Anthony Bowne comments: “By far the worst part of my job is when I learn of a talented young artist who can’t take up their place for financial reasons. While the details of the new bursaries are still to be announced, I’ll be delighted if they enable more brilliant young dancers and musicians to realise their dreams and come to study with us on our world class postgraduate programmes.”
Trinity Laban is still accepting applications onto some programmes of study for 2015/16. For more details email [email protected].
