Central launches new Postgraduate Scholarships
Central is delighted to announce that it has made over £90k available in postgraduate scholarships in order to support its students in the coming academic year. This brings the total amount in scholarships to £120K, which enables Central to offer its students considerable support.
Over 40 new scholarships are available for Central’s MA programmes, including substantial awards of over 50% of the fees for MA Performance Practices and Research, MA Creative Producing, MA Advanced Theatre Practice and MA Theatre Studies (Performance and the City). Scholarships will be awarded to both home and EU students on the basis of exceptional merit, funded by a mixture of private and charitable donations. This means that 1 in 4 of Central’s new MA students will receive a scholarship.
“I came to London without really knowing how I was going to support myself and pay my school fees, but being awarded the scholarship was a huge blessing and a massive relief. It literally meant I was able to stay at Central, and redirect my hard-earned savings towards living costs. I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity to be here, and this scholarship has continued to make that possible.” Luisa Lyons, MA Music Theatre
