At City & Guilds of London Art School we are committed to widening participation in higher education and offering the opportunity our specialist courses provide based on merit and potential. A number of organisations and individuals support our students with Financial Assistance and Scholarships. This is in recognition of our deserved reputation for excellence, our commitment to providing high levels of contact time with active professionals and our championing of specialist subjects.

Grant and Financial Assistance

Grant and Financial Assistance are awarded on the basis of demonstrable need and ability, and may be subject to criteria required by individual donors. In 2016/17, we were able to support over 60 students with a total of approximately £200,000. The average award is 33% to 50% of the tuition fee for a year though some cover a larger percentage.

The Art School also operates a Hardship Fund that enrolled students can apply to if they are facing financial hardship. Please note that the fund cannot be relied upon, nor is it sufficient, to finance a student’s course of study.
