Scholarships and bursaries
You might be eligible for some extra financial help such as a scholarship or a bursary. Unlike a loan, you don’t have to pay anything back. Since 2012, more than 3,000 undergraduates have benefited from one of our scholarships or bursaries. You could too.
Studentship: £2,100 in your first year if your annual household income is less than £25,000.
Merit Scholarship: £2,000 in your first year if you score 120 UCAS points from three A Levels (or equivalent, not including General Studies).
Achievement Scholarship: £2,000 in your first year, then £1,000 in both your second and third years, if you score 152 UCAS points from three A Levels (or equivalent, not including General Studies).
Applying for a bursary or scholarship is straightforward. When you apply to Student Finance England, there's a box on the form that asks if you're happy for your information to be shared. By agreeing to share your info, you'll automatically be considered for a scholarship or bursary. And if you plan to study medicine, social work, or healthcare (including nursing), you may be eligible for an NHS bursary.
