Financial Support, Bursaries and Scholarships
We offer a range of scholarships and bursaries to support our students. These awards provide financial aid, based on personal circumstances, household income or academic achievement.
Bursaries and scholarships are non-repayable, but do have varying eligibility criteria which you should review before making an application.
If you need extra financial help in addition to any monetary support you may already have gained for your studies, please contact the Students’ Union Advice Centre. The Advice Centre is on hand to offer impartial support and guidance on a wide range of financial issues.
