Condé Nast College offers two bursary awards for each intake of our BA (Hons) Fashion Communication & Industry Practice course, available to UK national applicants to apply to only, and funded by Condé Nast. These are awarded at the discretion of the College Bursary Panel. They are intended to widen participation and assist talented students who would not otherwise be in a position financially to undertake the course.
Please note we are unable to consider candidates who already have a degree-level qualification or overseas nationals for our bursaries.
Applicants need to first demonstrate that their annual income, if they are financially independent, is below £20,000 per annum, or if they are financially dependent, that their parents '/family annual household income is below £50,000 per annum. Students who meet these criteria are invited to indicate their interest in competing for one of the Condé Nast bursaries by completing and signing the bursary application form. This will include a confidential Financial Disclosure and should be submitted after receiving a conditional or unconditional offer of a place.
All applicants will undertake the normal application and interview process before finding out if they have been offered a place. If an applicant is offered a place on the course and chooses to accept it, they can decide to apply for the bursary if they fall below the above financial thresholds.
You do not need to indicate that you intend to apply for a bursary until you have received an offer of a place on the course.
Candidates’ financial declarations will be examined initially upon receipt to confirm that they meet the income limits indicated above. They will then be examined further by the College Bursary Panel (BA Course Director and Admissions Manager) to consider all other financial information submitted, and decisions made on the two successful awardees based on, but not limited to:
- Household income
- Household expenditure
- Capital assets
- Capital liabilities
- Supporting financial documents
- Interview performance
- Personal statement
- Academic potential
- Previous work experience
- Previous education
- Career goals and aspirations
Each successful awardee will receive full remission of tuition fees. Successful awardees will be notified in early-May 2024. Unfortunately, we cannot provide feedback for unsuccessful applicants and do not offer an appeal process for these discretionary awards.
Bursary applications for the 2024 BA intake will be accepted from 1st December 2023 until 30th April 2024: no applications will be considered after this date.
