We have a variety of scholarships, bursaries and other funding to help you with tuition fees and living expenses. 

Types of funding

Our scholarships are a mixture of outstanding academic achievement and interview scores combined with personal circumstances. Our bursaries are payments to those who are or may find themselves in financial difficulties without support

  • Scholarships are typically allocated based on your outstanding academic achievements or extracurricular activities.
  • Bursaries are typically allocated based on personal circumstance, such as 'residual household income' - the combined income of the parent(s), guardian(s) or partner who you live with. We assess this automatically and will be in touch if you're eligible.
