Funding undergraduate study

Funding advice

The Student Funding Office provides guidance on the financial help you can expect from bursaries, scholarships and UK Government loans. If you've previously studied in Higher Education, contact us to discuss how this will affect your funding.

The costs you are likely to have while at university are accommodation costs, general living costs and tuition fees. Read our advice on managing your finances while you study.

Funding for Home (UK) students

UK students can access funding from the Government: a tuition fee loan and a maintenance loan to help cover living costs. More specialised funding can be available, such as the Childcare Grant, Disabled Students' Allowances and NHS funding.

The University of Bristol offers a range of funding for UK students:

Funding for EU students

EU students can apply for tuition fee loans from the UK Government but are not eligible for living cost loans. EU students may find funding from University scholarships.

Current EU students who have been assessed as eligible to receive loans and/or grants from the SLC, will continue to receive these loans and grants until they finish their course. On 2nd July 2018, the Universities Minister announced that EU students starting in 2019/20 would continue to be eligible to pay Home fees and remain eligible for tuition fee loans.

See the Student Loans Company website for details.

Funding for International students

Visit our International Scholarships page to search for scholarships which may help you fund your studies. Ensure you meet the eligibility criteria before making an application for a scholarship.

You can also use our funding search to look for scholarships and awards.

Please note you must have enough funding in place for your living costs and your tuition fees before you arrive at university.
