Scholarships & Bursaries 2020/21
University of Bedfordshire Bursary and Scholarship 2020/21
We’re investing in your future – up to £2400* cash during your undergraduate study.
If there’s one thing that concerns most students, it’s the idea of debt and how to cover the cost of university. However, for you it need not be a worry. Here at the University of Bedfordshire we offer a wide range of scholarships and bursaries to support your studies and that’s cash that you don’t need to pay back.
We offer a Merit Scholarship, worth £2,400* over 3 academic years, which is awarded to those who can demonstrate a high level of academic achievement, through scoring 112 UCAS points or more.
However, don’t worry if you don’t. We’re keen on supporting each and every one of our students at Bedfordshire, so if you aren’t eligible for the merit scholarship you will get £1,500* over 3 academic years with our bursary, or £1000* over 2 academic years if you’re a top-up student receiving the Level 5 bursary. We take the worry out of financial woes, leaving you more time to focus on your studies and having a great experience with us. Take a look below for more information and for the full terms and conditions.
