Funding Opportunities

There is a wide range of financial support available for students at the University of Nottingham. The support available depends on many factors such as:

  • subject
  • award level
  • where you live
  • 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.
