Funding Opportunities

We believe that students should not be excluded on the basis of cost alone; therefore financial support of up to the cost of the programme fee is available. The majority of the grants available are for £500. Anyone is welcome to apply, but applications will be prioritised based on the following criteria: 

  • If the applicant qualifies for a means-tested bursary from the university 
  • If the applicant is in the first generation of their family to go to university 
  • The personal statement written by the applicant in support of their application 

Please indicate on your application form if you wish to apply for financial assistance and explain your reasons for doing so. 

We also encourage all applicants to speak to their relevant College Administrator to see if a College travel grant is available. 

Your Global Exploration

We also work in partnership with the university on Your Global Exploration, a selection of academically-focussed trips that take place during the Easter vacation.
