Funding Opportunities

Due to the impact of the Coronavirus COVID-19 some of these sources of funding may not be available for 2022 entry.

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.
