Selection process

Applications for the scholarship are made to the Aziz Foundation who shortlist, interview, and make offers according to the criteria above. The awarding of a scholarship does not imply that the applicant has been made an offer of study. Goldsmiths' usual application, admissions, and selection processes will apply.

An offer of study by Goldsmiths does not imply that this includes the Scholarship award. Applications for the scholarship must be made separately as outlined above.

*Discontinuation of study will normally result in the ending of the Scholarship. In cases where the student suspends study, the scholarship may only resume with the approval of the Aziz Foundation.
