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: studentfunding@ucl.ac.uk.

UCL Undergraduate Bursary

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 website.

UCL Scholarships

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.

UCL Financial Assistance Fund

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: 

UCL Hardship Fund

If you struggle with your finances, after enrolment, you can apply for assistance from the UCL Student Hardship Fund.

UCL Care Leaver Bursary

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 Offices.

For a comprehensive list of funding opportunities available to prospective students, please visit the Scholarships and funding website.
