Music Tuition Awards

Our Music Tuition awards contribute to the cost of 16 weeks of music tuition over Semesters 1 and 2 through the SU Arts department. They equate to a £280 deduction in music tuition fees per successful applicant.


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

Previous applicants/successful scholarship recipients can also apply.

Below is the full list of eligible music tuition for 2024/25:

  • Brass
  • Guitar
  • Saxophone
  • Clarinet
  • Music Theory
  • Violin
  • Flute
  • Piano

Application Process

Students will be selected upon passion for music, achievement to date and commitment to their musical progression.

All applications should be made through the online portal before the deadline of midnight on Tuesday, 1st October 2024.

Applications will be scored by a panel and successful applicants will be notified on Thursday 3rd October 2024.

Awardees will need to book their tuition between 5pm on Thursday 3rd October 2024 and 5pm on Friday 4th October 2024, in order to guarantee teaching slots.

Please note: 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).

Donor Support

Our 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.
