Grants and bursaries
Apart from the money you and your family may have to support you while you are studying, there are a number of sources of funding available to students.
Applying for a bursary
If you’re a full-time student, we will use the household income data provided by the Student Loans Company and, during the first year of study, your term-time address to assess eligibility. There is no additional application form for the UCL Undergraduate Bursary provided that you opt-in to sharing your household income information.
If you’re a part-time student, you will need to apply for a bursary separately. To request a bursary application form email: email@example.com.
All full-time UK/EU students who apply for income-assessed
student support (including those provided in Wales, Scotland and
Northern Ireland or via the NHS Grants Unit), where assessed household
income is £42,620 or less (for 2014 entry), will be eligible to receive a
UCL Undergraduate Bursary.
All part-time students from the UK and EU studying at a
level of at least 25% of the full-time equivalent, and whose assessed
household income is £42,620 or less (for 2014 entry), will be eligible
to receive a UCL Undergraduate Bursary.
Bursaries will be available to students starting in 2015,
however, the levels of funding available for 2015 entry have not been
set yet. Information is expected to be available in the summer of 2014;
prospective students are advised to check the relevant pages of the UCL
We offer a range of scholarships for UK and EU students,
some tied to particular departments and some open to all. Certain awards
are restricted to students from specific countries.
The UCL Financial Assistance Fund provides financial
assistance to Home/EU/International students who find themselves in financial
difficulty once they have enrolled. Any money awarded does not have to be
repaid. This provides a useful financial safety net but is not a substitute for
other sources of funding.
For more information regarding the fund, visit the UCL Financial Assistance Fund page:
If you struggle with your finances, after enrolment, you can apply for assistance from the UCL Student Hardship Fund.
Awards of £1,000 per year are available for UK students who live in or have lived in care. Candidates for this bursary must:
- be prospective UK students, under the age of 25, who can demonstrate that they live in or have lived in care for more than three months
- hold an offer of admission to UCL to study a full-time undergraduate degree.
There is no application process; candidates for this
bursary will be recommended by the UCL Outreach and Student Funding
For a comprehensive list of funding opportunities available to prospective students, please visit the Scholarships and funding website.
