N170 scholarships awarded
NUA has extended the financial support it offers to students by funding three new international scholarships. The scholarships have been awarded on the basis of academic merit and to students who demonstrated a standard of excellence at their interview with their current portfolio of work and their creative potential and enthusiasm for their chosen course of study.
American student Natalie Sowa, Year 1 Design for Publishing, received the top scholarship of £5,000. On receiving her award she commented: “Without the scholarship I would have struggled to cover the cost of my tuition fees and been unable to accept my place at NUA. I am extremely grateful for the support I have received.”
Adrian Lim from Malaysia, Year 1 Graphic Design, received £2,000 and MA Fashion student Naomi Wambugu from Kenya received the N170 International Postgraduate Scholarship of £2,000. All scholarships have been awarded against tuition fees which make a significant contribution to the cost for international students studying in the UK.
