Undergraduate funding for UK (home) students

We offer scholarships, bursaries and other funding to help you with tuition fees and living expenses.

Opportunities for 2023/24 entry will continue to be updated, so please check this page throughout the year.

Types of funding

Scholarships and bursaries are financial awards to help towards your study and living costs. You don't need to pay them back.

  • Scholarships are typically allocated based on your outstanding academic achievements or extracurricular activities.
  • Bursaries are typically allocated based on personal circumstance, such as 'residual household income' - the combined income of the parent(s), guardian(s) or partner who you live with. We often assess this automatically, and will be in touch if you're eligible.

UK Government loans

You may be entitled to a tuition fee loan to help fund your studies.

Funding for students with disabilities

If you have a mental health problem, long-term illness or any other disability, you may be eligible for additional financial support.
