Scholarships & Bursaries

We are enthusiastic for our students to build on the success they have enjoyed at School or College and to be successful during their time at this University. Therefore we offer a range of scholarships to assist students in settling in to their studies and meeting the financial requirements of their University course. Some of these are means-tested but we also offer special scholarships which reward academic achievement. One is offered on the basis of performance in the qualifying examinations for university entrance (e.g. A-levels). A scholarship package is also offered to reward good performance in the Qualifying (First) Year Examinations. This scheme includes special prizes that have been inaugurated in collaboration with our commercial partners. Full details of all scholarship prizes will be provided at the UCAS Open Days.

  • Sir Peter Mansfield High-Achiever Scholarships, open to home and EU students.
  • University of Nottingham Scholarships & Bursaries. It is anticipated that approximately half of undergraduates will be able to receive a University bursary, depending on parental income. A range of subject specific Scholarships and Bursaries are offered to eligible candidates that reward hard work and achievement.
  • First Year Scholarships. Open to all students registered for one of our single honours courses that major in Physics (see note 1 below). Information will be provided at the UCAS visit days.
  • Prizes

Finally, the School and University have a number of small grants and bursaries available for particular projects.

Eligible courses: F300, F303, F3F5, F3FM, F3R9, F3RX, F344, F340, F346, F345, F350, F371, F390, F391. For Physics & Philosophy (FV35) and Mathematical Physics (F325, F326) which are offered jointly with another School, the scholarships are awarded at 50% of the standard amount.
