There are alternative ways to fund your studies, including:
- other loans
- scholarships and bursaries
- personal savings
- part-time work
Trinity Laban also has some funding opportunities available and provides a variety of awards to students each year.
There is no separate application process in order to be considered for scholarship funding prior to enrolment in music programmes at Trinity Laban. All students are considered automatically following the acceptance of a place. It is an ongoing process and we will let you know if you have been successful in obtaining an award via email.
Generally, postgraduate awards are for tuition fees rather than living costs and will not be given to you directly, but offset against fees.
Undergraduates in receipt of an award, but eligible for Student Finance to cover their fees, can use the award for other purposes.
We do encourage you to look for your own funding and provide comprehensive information on how to obtain external funding.
Scholarships and awards include:
- Leverhulme Arts Scholarship
- Trinity Laban Dance Awards
- Gill Clarke Bursary offered by Independent Dance
