How do you fund Watford or SCA?

There’s a few ways. There’s the bank of mum and Dad (the majority at SCA are funded this way) , SCA do scholarships for a select minority of their cohort - best person to contact is the Dean Marc Lewis to find out how to apply to get one. They are very competitive. Watford is far more affordable - £5,000 for the year - so you could work a day / night job around the course. There used to be personal development loans available but the British government scrapped them. Neither schools are eligible for student finance as they’re not universities. You don’t have to go to either to get in. I didn’t go to any ad school and I’m now working at a top agency - had some wicked placements too. DM me if you want some advice.

@CD1 I agree with you, and the books of Watford grads are so unflashy and they’re focused purely on the idea. It’s such a shame that after the incredible talents it’s consistently produced for 20 + years that the course is on its last legs and struggling to get students every year. The course has produced several multimillionaire agency founders, would be great if some could pump some £££ into the course like other agencies do into SCA!
