Financial Aid and Scholarships

A number of awards and scholarships are available to help our Study Abroad students fund their time here in London.

Financial aid and US loans

All 6 Colleges of University of the Arts London are Title IV Registered. Eligible students who enrol on a semester programme here can continue to take out financial aid via their home institution.

However, Study Abroad students are not eligible to receive US Federal or private loans through our institution.

Should you wish to take out a US loan, please contact the Financial Aid Office at your home institution. University of the Arts London is able to enter into a consortium agreement and this should be arranged via your home institution.
