Bursaries and Scholarships

We offer extra financial support for undergraduate students – check to see if you’re eligible for additional funding.

Bursaries

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

NTU bursaries for 2023 entry

We will award a cash bursary of £750 per year to eligible full-time UK and home undergraduate degree or foundation degree students who started their studies at NTU in 2023.

The bursary is provided 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 £27,500 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.

If eligible, 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.

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.

You should receive written confirmation from us between September and November 2022. Contact us on +44 (0)115 848 2494 or email our Financial Support team if you think you meet the bursary eligibility criteria but haven’t received the letter by November.
