£1,200 towards the cost of your degree
How we can help you
You'll automatically receive at least £1,200 in study support over your degree for most of our undergraduate courses. This is based on a typical three-year course. The funding is part of a UK government programme.
Further financial help
There are a number of other ways we provide financial support, especially for our students from a low-income household or who show high academic or sporting achievements. We offer reduced tuition fees, cash bursaries, our own National Scholarship programme and study support packages. Amounts vary and depend on individual circumstances and A Level results, so the best thing to do is get in touch and we'll go over your options.
We also hand a Book Plus card to all our students, which can be used with John Smith's, our campus bookshop. You or your family can top up the card to spend it online or in store for any books or study materials you need. You can also use it to sell your books back to John Smith's, putting the money towards whatever you need next.Calculate your financial support
