Scholarships and fee reductions

We offer a number of scholarships across a variety of study areas and we encourage you to apply if you think you might be eligible.

You should apply for scholarships at the same time as you apply for your programme of study (there’s no need to wait until you’ve been accepted into your programme). Late applications may be accepted for some scholarships.
