Scholarships and bursaries

  • Financial help from Middlesex

Most UK/EU undergraduate students can get loans to cover their fees and, depending on your family's income, you might be entitled to more help from the government in the form of loans or grants.

International students may also be able to access financial support from their government.

The Scholarships and bursaries available to current undergraduate and postgraduate students changes on a regular basis so please keep checking to make sure you are eligible to receive a financial reward.

Please note that the decision of the Scholarships Committee is final.

Although you are welcome to apply for more than one Scholarship (if eligible) please note that successful applicants can only be in receipt of one scholarship at one time.

If successful in being awarded more than one scholarship you will automatically be awarded the one of highest value.

  • Other scholarships and funding

Hardship fund

If you are in need of financial support during this difficult time, then please contact the Student Welfare Advice Team (SWAT) who can assess cases on an individual basis.

The University, our alumni community and corporate partners have worked together to provide additional donations to our student hardship fund, so that we can better respond to the individual needs of our students.

External scholarships

There are many charitable foundations that you can apply to for support through your studies - you can look them up online.

If you have a Scottish parent who has served or is serving in the Armed Forces or part of a low income household and living in the London area, you may qualify for support from The Royal Caledonian Schools Trust.

International students

You should check with the Ministry of Education in your home country to see what funding may be available from your own government.

You can also apply for the British Government's Chevening Scholarships, and a variety of private agencies and charities for scholarships, bursaries and grants to study in the UK.

For more information visit the British Council website or the UK Council for International Student Affairs website.

  • PGCE busary

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) training bursary is provided by the Government to support students studying PGCE programmes.

There are three types of funding available and depending on your circumstances, you could receive all three:

1. Tax-free bursary or scholarship
2. Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan
3. Additional financial support if you’re a parent or have a disability

If you’re eligible, you will begin receiving payments when you begin your course. If you’re awarded a bursary or scholarship, you’ll receive this in 10 equal monthly instalments from October to July.

Please visit the Get into Teaching website for more information on eligibility, payments and to apply.

To speak to one of our advisors, please email our Student Finance team or call 020 8411 5799.
