Support from the University

Leeds Financial Support

At Leeds we’re committed to ensuring that, if you have the talent, drive and potential to succeed, you are encouraged to take advantage of a University of Leeds education, whatever your background. The Leeds Financial Support scheme can provide additional, non-repayable support, for both full-time and part-time students.

How much Leeds Financial Support could I get?

The amount of Leeds Financial support you could get will depend on your household income and whether you are full-time or part-time.


If you are starting the first year of a full-time degree (but not a Foundation Year) you could be eligible for a University scholarship.

Additional financial support may be available after you have started your course.
