Funding for archaeology students

Scholarships, studentships and bursaries

Your eligibility for student funding depends on variables including the subject and award level of the course you are taking, your residency status, where you live in term time and your household income.

Many of the financial support options require you to hold an offer of a place to study at Nottingham before you can make an application for funding. It is therefore highly recommended that you begin the application process in time to meet the funding deadlines.

Students across our University are benefitting from scholarships, bursaries, and prizes thanks to the support of our donors.
