This information is intended for students applying for admission to the University of Leicester Foundation Degree in Drug and Alcohol Counselling and Treatment either on-campus or by distance learning.
Part-time students on undergraduate courses can now take out a non-means tested tuition fee loan to cover the costs of tuition fees, which means you won't have to pay your fees upfront and you'll only begin to repay the loan if you are earning more than £21,000 a year.
The University of Leicester Student Welfare Service also administers various funds for which students may qualify if they are ineligible for Tuition Fee Loan funding.
Society for the Study of Addiction
The Society for the Study of Addiction offers bursaries to individuals who have a place on a University programme in addiction studies, and have a demonstrable commitment to working in the addictions field. The busary can cover up to £750 towards course fees.
The Alcohol Education and Research Council offers studentships for people working in the alcohol field who wish to acquire appropriate professional qualifications by following a taught course. The purpose of the scheme is to encourage research in the alcohol field.
Applicants should have been at least provisionally accepted for a taught course leading to a diploma or similar qualification in alcohol-related studies. They should normally be working for a voluntary agency.
