University Scholarships and Support

Over £4m invested in scholarships every year

The University of Bradford offers a wide range of financial help to assist you on your university journey, and invests over £4m annually in the Access Agreement and other scholarships to support students from all backgrounds.

Every year we award numerous non-repayable scholarships to UK, EU and international students on the basis of academic excellence, personal circumstances or economic hardship. Some of our scholarships are also linked to studies in a specific subject area*.

You can apply for more than one type of scholarship but you can usually only be granted one award.

*NHS-funded students are not eligible for University of Bradford scholarships.
