Scholarships

We offer a number of scholarship opportunities to support and reward undergraduates who have the potential to be an outstanding student. If you are a UK or EU student you may also be able to receive government support to help towards your tuition fees and living costs.

We are committed to recognising hard work and achievement, which is why we also offer a number of prizes, many sponsored by industry, to students who achieve an excellent performance during their time at Leeds. You might also be recognised for academic excellence by being awarded with a place on the prestigious Dean’s list.
