Scholarships and Fee Waivers

The Sky Scholarship offers media students the chance to gain work experience with leading broadcaster, Sky.

The scheme is open to undergraduate and postgraduate Media and Communication students – they don’t have to specialise in television production to be considered.

The annual programme offers students the chance to work in the Content Services department for Sky, which will open their eyes to a wealth of broadcasting roles that they may previously have been unaware of, such as Ingest, Quality Control, Audio Description, Stills and Archive. In the second week of the placement students have a choice about where they are placed.

The student judged to have performed best during the two-week placement receives a scholarship award from Sky of £1,500, with the two runners-up each receiving £500.

Often, shortlisted students who don’t make the final selection are still invited to visit Sky for a few days to gain a taste of working in television.

Many of the students who have won placements with Sky have gone on to get a job there when they have graduated.
