Scholarships

Please note: The current scholarship information is for the 2018/19 academic year only. Information for the academic year 2019/20 will be published when it becomes available.

We recognise that undertaking a degree course can lead to financial concerns. We have developed a package of scholarships and bursaries to make this easier for some of our most talented students.

Our range of scholarships for UK and EU students are outlined below. International students should visit the international scholarships page for information about the scholarship packages available to them.

You can apply for more than one scholarship, however, if successful, you will only receive one which will be the highest value for each level of study. If you are eligible for the alumni scholarship you will be able to receive this and one other scholarship.
