For 2021 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 UK undergraduate means tested scholarships are of higher value than the University’s funding package Leeds Financial Support (funding which is automatically awarded based on a student’s 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).

Alongside the scholarships, you'll have access to one-to-one support and advice sessions, group workshops, mentoring opportunities, social events and monthly newsletters updating you on relevant activity on and off campus through the Plus Programme.

There are a limited number of scholarships available. We will award the UK undergraduate means-tested scholarships to selected UK students from low income households who also meet the eligibility criteria and are entering Leeds as full-time, level one undergraduates in September 2021.

The scholarships are available thanks to the generous support from alumni and other organisations.
