Berghs Advanced Scholarship

For applicants on the (communication) road less travelled.

The essentials:

  • 2 scholarships awarded.
  • Simple application process.
  • A structured communications education.

Berghs is committed to promoting a diversity of backgrounds at school and in the communications industry.

OBJECTIVE

Lowering the economic threshold for candidates who can bring a different set of skills to the course – and ultimately, to the communications business, is one way to make an impact on this commitment. The scholarship encourages applications from individuals who do not have a formal education within the fields of communication, advertising or design, but have come closer to these disciplines in other ways. We support non-traditional education backgrounds and/or life journeys.

The scholarship significantly reduces the tuition fee of the Advanced portfolio courses and eases the journey of domestic and international students who wish to invest in a future in communications.
