Bursaries and Scholarships

We offer extra financial support for undergraduate students. Make sure you don’t miss out – check to see if you’re eligible for additional funding.

Bursaries

A bursary is an award which can help those who may not have otherwise been able to afford to attend university. NTU offers the following cash bursaries to prospective students:

NTU bursaries for 2021 entry

We award a cash bursary of £750 per year to eligible full-time UK and home undergraduate degree or foundation degree students who are starting their studies at NTU in 2021.

This £750 cash award to supplement living costs is paid to eligible students who:

  • are paying the maximum home tuition fee for their full-time undergraduate degree or foundation degree course
  • have a household income of £25,000 per year or less (as assessed by their UK national Student Finance Service)
  • are eligible to receive a tuition fee loan and a maintenance loan from their UK National Student Finance Service.

This bursary is paid in each year of your course (except during any year-long work placement as part of a sandwich degree). Full terms and conditions will be published on the Studenthub.

How to apply

There’s no separate application process to apply for an NTU Bursary. Your eligibility is automatically assessed as long as you’ve applied and are eligible for a tuition fee loan and a maintenance loan from your national Student Finance Service.

We should automatically receive confirmation of your eligibility provided that you haven’t withdrawn consent to share financial information with the University for the purposes of assessing bursary entitlement.

If we award you a bursary, you’ll receive written confirmation from us.

You should receive your letter between September and November. Contact us on +44 (0)115 848 2494 or email financial.support@ntu.ac.uk if you think you meet the bursary eligibility criteria, but haven’t received the letter by November.
