The scholarship information below relates to entry to the University of Leeds for UK undergraduate students in 2017/18 only.
For 2017 entry, if your household income is less than £42,875 a year you may be eligible to apply for a means-tested undergraduate scholarship.
Worth £3,000 a year for three years (paid in cash instalments), our scholarships based on household income are of higher value than the Universitys funding package Leeds Financial Support (funding which is automatically awarded based on a students household income level).
The scholarships are non-repayable and are in addition to the financial support you can receive from the government (ie tuition fee loan or maintenance loan).
There are a limited number of awards available. We will award the undergraduate means-tested scholarships to selected UK students from low income households who meet the eligibility criteria and are entering Leeds as full-time, level one undergraduates in September 2017.
The scholarships are available thanks to the generous support from alumni and other organisations.
A small number of means-tested HSBC Scholarships worth £10,000 a year are available for students who achieve AAB or higher at A-Level in the same academic year (or a comparable, equivalent qualification, excluding General Studies or Critical Thinking). The HSBC Scholarship will provide students who are the most in need with a £7,000 tuition fee waiver and a £3,000 cash award for each standard year of their degree. Students on some courses are not eligible for this scholarship. View the list of exceptions
Applying for means-tested scholarships
Please note that meeting the eligibility criteria alone will not guarantee you an award, but if you feel you meet the eligibility criteria for the means-tested scholarships (which includes the HSBC Scholarship), you are welcome to submit an application for consideration.
You will only need to apply once and we will consider you for all means-tested scholarships (including the HSBC scholarship) where you meet the deadline and eligibility criteria.
You are welcome to apply for a means-tested scholarship before you make your firm and insurance choices with UCAS (although you will only be eligible to receive a means-tested scholarship if you begin a full-time course at the University of Leeds in September 2017). Please remember you will need to submit your scholarship application before the Students Loan Company application deadline (which falls at the end of May).
To apply for a means-tested scholarship you will need to submit a fully completed application form by 12pm on Friday 19 May 2017.If you have any questions about the scholarships based on household income please contact the Scholarships Officer
