Scholarships

The NFTS is committed to ensuring it is open to students of genuine ability, no matter what their background or financial circumstances.

In the last year, 8 in 10 UK students received support, with more than £950,000 given out in total.

As an institution that develops the next generation of creative talent we feel a special responsibility to ensure our creative industries reflect the full diversity of our country. The NFTS awards more scholarships and bursaries to British students, relative to the size of our student body, than almost any other educational institution in the UK.

All long term resident UK students, once they are offered a place on an MA or full time Diploma programme, are invited to apply for an NFTS funding award. Awards may consist of either a bursary or a scholarship or a combination of both.

NFTS Scholarships are donated by individuals or organisations with a direct involvement in the film, games and television industries. They often include a mentorship and an individual donor may take in interest in your work.

The NFTS funding awards contribute directly to tuition fees and may be between £1,000 and £10,000. They are not re-payable by the student.
They are only available to UK permanent residents.

Value of Scholarship(s)

£1,000-£10,000

Eligibility

NFTS funding is only available to UK permanent residents.

Application Procedure

Students are invited to apply in both of the two years of the MA course. Some scholarships are intended to be for a particular specialisation, for female students, or awarded on ethnicity or according to the UK region of an applicant.
