Other sources of funding

Students studying abroad on exchanges, under the Study Abroad scheme for example, pay only their UCL tuition fees and no fees to the host institution.

If you study abroad at a European university with which UCL has a student exchange agreement (Erasmus programme), you are eligible for a special monthly grant funded by the European Commission.

We also offer Study Abroad Bursaries, designed to assist those students most in financial need who are planning to study overseas. These are available in addition to the UCL Undergraduate Bursary.

If you’re a UK student with a disability, you may be eligible for the Disabled Students’ Allowance.

This covers additional study-related costs that arise because of your disability. The allowance is not means-tested.

You can work part-time, as many students do, to supplement your income during your studies.

That said, we’d like to emphasise that your academic work should take priority! One of the many benefits of studying and living in London is there is no shortage of opportunities for varied and reasonably paid part-time work. UCLU’s JobShop service could help you find flexible part-time employment.
