Music scholarships-Bournemouth University

If you’re passionate about music and want to continue to develop your talents while you’re studying for your degree, the BU Music scholarships are here to support you. Some of the money you’re awarded will go towards regular music lessons for your main instrument or voice with one of the university’s tutors, but you can use the remainder to see your favourite artists in concert, buy new music for your collection or even to pick up a new outfit to wear on stage – whatever fuels your musical passion.
