About the scholarships 

We’re offering five undergraduate scholarships to support applicants who face barriers to higher education because of their immigration status.

Each scholarship: 

  • Includes a designated member of staff to provide support, guidance and opportunities throughout your studies including regular networking meetings with other scholarship holders. 
  • Covers the full cost of the tuition fees for a maximum of the normal duration of the undergraduate programme for which the applicant has been admitted, until such time as they are awarded a status that entitles them to access student finance. 
  • Provides £5,000 per year towards living cost expenses. 
  • Provides a free place in one of our halls of residence for scholarship students who wish to stay in University accommodation. 

The scholarship is not available for our Medicine, Dentistry or Architecture courses.

Eligibility criteria

The scholarships are designed to provide financial assistance to students who are not eligible for UK government student financial support because of their immigration status as Sanctuary Seekers in the UK. 

To apply for one of these scholarships, you must: 

  • Have applied to 鶹 for a place on a course starting in September 2024 (you don’t need to have received a course offer in order to submit your application, but we will look at which applicants have been made an offer when shortlisting for the scholarship interviews). 
  • Be unable to access mainstream funding (such as student finance loans). 
  • Meet specific immigration criteria related to Sanctuary Scholarships.
