New Students - 2019 Entry

If you're a full-time undergraduate student with home* fee status starting at The University of Nottingham in September 2019 there are several types of bursary and scholarship on offer. To be eligible to apply for most of these funds you must be liable for the home undergraduate tuition fee and not be in receipt of a bursary from outside the University.  If you're an International or EU student please go to the international scholarship pages for details of relevant scholarships.

University Bursaries

The University of Nottingham offers bursaries (non-repayable grants) to home students from lower-income backgrounds and to those from certain under-represented groups. Depending on your circumstances these can provide a total of up to £3,000 a year (in addition any Student Loan you receive).

These bursaries are guaranteed, which means if you meet the eligibility criteria you will definitely get the award - they are not limited in terms of the number of awards available.

The awards included in this category are the Core Bursary and the Nottingham Potential Bursary.

The University also offers a range of competitive scholarships with various criteria.
