Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts have partnered with the leading premium magazines, Harper's Bazaar  and Cosmopolitan  to offer fully-funded scholarships with internships for UK students in a bid to encourage accessibility and diversity in the fashion, animation, film and gaming industries.



As part of our long term partnership with Hearst Magazines, UK, we are jointly offering two scholarships for students with creative flare, passion and a drive to work as a professional creative. Students who receive these scholarships will not only study with us and learn from our expert lecturers, they will also be given live briefs and tasks through internships held at Cosmopolitan and Harper's Bazaar headquarters.

CSVPA BA (Hon) Fashion

Our joint venture includes a scholarship for the prestigious CSVPA BA (Hons) Fashion degree course, headed by award-winning designer Holly Fulton, which is affiliated and supported by Harper’s Bazaar. With a focus on contemporary fashion design or branding, this three-year degree course encourages creativity whilst equipping students with all the skills needed to work in the fashion industry through group projects, workshops and live briefs.

This is an intensive two-year, full-time diploma providing a broad understanding of the creative process of animation, film and games design. It is for 16-18 year olds and offers an alternative route to A-levels. The scholarship includes accommodation and is fully catered for the two years.
