Arts Scholarships

The Arts Scholarship programme supports students who are keen to develop their individual arts interests alongside their studies. Successful applicants to the programme will receive £1000 a year and be part of the scholar network, collaborating with like-minded peers and performing at various community and University events.

Arts scholarships are available to all University of Bath students in any year of study on any undergraduate or postgraduate course at the University of Bath; including placement (full or part year), remote study, part-time or international scholars.

Previous applicants/successful scholarship recipients can also apply.

You are welcome to apply to progress and develop any art form which may include (but is not limited to) the following:

  • Performing Arts (including acting, music, dancing, singing, spoken word, musical theatre, circus etc.)
  • Technical/Backstage skills
  • Visual Arts (inc. photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, digital, video art etc.)
  • Excellence in piano
  • A new art form (for example: DJ, gaming design, interactive design)

Music Tuition Awards

These awards contribute to the cost of music tuition in Semesters 1 and 2 through the SU Arts department.

Music Awards are available to all University of Bath students in any year of study on any undergraduate course at the University of Bath; including placement (full or part year), remote study, part-time or international scholars.

Previous applicants/successful scholarship recipients can also apply.

There are multiple awards available, with ringfenced awards for:

  • one Year 1 student
  • one pianist
  • one singer

Music Tuition Awards are made possible thanks to generous gifts from Kathryn and Simon Arnold, and Sir Robert and Lady Hill who have enabled students at the University of Bath to benefit from music tuition.

Students can apply for both a Music Tuition Award and an Arts Scholarship, however; you will only receive one award if successful (unless you have applied with separate art forms).
