Bursaries and scholarships

We offer a range of bursaries and scholarships to support eligible students applying for undergraduate courses.

You can apply for more than one bursary award, but only one bursary will be awarded (usually the highest value for which you're eligible). Unlike a Student Loan, bursaries do not have to be repaid.

Bursaries don't affect eligibility for state support, such as maintenance grants and loans for tuition fees and living costs. So, it’s a good idea to see if you are eligible for any of the following bursaries we offer.

If you're starting your studies with us in September 2019, you'll be able to download the relevant forms for each bursary from the 1 April 2019.
