Each academic year, a number of Scholarships are offered by DLD College London. Awards can range from 5% to 50% of tuition fees depending on the type of Scholarship being awarded. Scholarships are offered to students showing talent and potential in a subject area of their choice. Scholars are expected to contribute to student life in the school and to participate in co-curricular activities offered.

Suitability for a Scholarship will be assessed through the admissions process and students will be asked to complete an assessment in their chosen subject(s).

The Scholarships available are non means-tested and offer a remission against tuition fees.


Alpha Scholars Programme

Open to both International and Domestic students, the Alpha Scholars programme offers Scholarships of up to 50% of tuition fees to students who can demonstrate academic brilliance and leadership qualities.
