Financial help and support

You need to organise funds for your tuition fees and living costs before you arrive at University. If you have the talent and ability to succeed at Bristol, concerns about funding your studies should not stop you from applying.

Our Student Funding Office provides information on studentships, bursaries and scholarships. We can also advise students about postgraduate study loans. You'll receive confirmation of any scholarship or award before you start your studies.

New for 2022: The Bristol Master’s Scholarship will award 50 talented home students from underrepresented backgrounds within our student community £2000 each to help support their studies.
