What are scholarships and awards?

In a nutshell, non-repayable cash awards that are paid into your bank account, or discounts on your tuition fees.

We offer a number of awards, bursaries and scholarships for eligible students. And we've highlighted some great awards that are available from other providers too.

They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and may be available for UK, EU and International students. They’re awarded for a variety of reasons including academic achievement and/or to help those on lower incomes.

Scholarships and bursaries are separate to student loans. And the best bit is, you don’t pay a penny back!
