Fees and funding for humanities students 

The University is committed to making study at Nottingham both accessible and affordable.


General funding information for humanities students

The information on these pages provides basic details about funding available from the University of Nottingham and external sources. The University also has a funding database which you can search. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Your student funding depends on the course you are taking, your residency status, where you live in term time and your household income.

Undergraduate students

At undergraduate level fees do not have to be paid upfront and the University provides a generous package of bursaries to support home students from lower-income families. Well over a third of our students will be eligible for our core bursaries, which offer up to £3,000 for each year of undergraduate study.

Postgraduate students

The majority of postgraduate students in the UK fund their own studies, often from a package made up of personal savings, parental loans or contributions, bank loans and support from a trust or charity.

However, financial support and competitive scholarships are available and we encourage applicants to explore all funding opportunities at least a year in advance of the start date.

Scholarships for International Students

As an international student, you can take advantage of one of the UK's largest scholarship portfolios.  For information on scholarships, fees and finance for international student, please visit the International Office Website.  

Overseas students can also apply for a Vice Chancellor's Scholarship for Research Excellence (International), which pays tuition fees for a full-time research degree programme (PhD or MPhil) at Nottingham.
