The scholarship information below relates to entry to the University of Leeds for UK undergraduate students in 2017/18 only.
The deadline for applications was Friday 19 May 2017. We will not be able to accept any applications after this date.
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
