“Without a scholarship I wouldn’t have been able to afford to study a Masters and I definitely wouldn’t be at Leeds right now.”
We want to ensure that a quality education is available to everyone no matter what their circumstances or background and our financial support can help students who may not have considered going to university.
The University offers a range of scholarships for UK, EU and international students, and have an extensive bursary system funded both by the University and by our philanthropic donors this helps make Leeds one of the most socially diverse universities in the UK.
This work is supported by more than 14,000 donors, many of them University of Leeds alumni who give generously to our Footsteps Fund, which reduces the financial burden of studying for students from less privileged backgrounds.
