Scholarships and Bursaries

Anumber of the University's Schools have set aside funds or been given grants to reward students' academic achievements and to help them to make ends meet. For details of the scholarships and bursaries currently available (together with any conditions which may be attached) see below.

It is hoped that the number and value of these awards can be increased, and that Schools not presently giving such assistance will be able to do so in the future. Details of the academic scholarships and bursaries listed below can be obtained direct from the Admissions Tutor in the relevant Department.
