Bursaries and Scholarships

We have a range of Bursaries and Scholarships at the University of Leicester. We also have other help available aimed at students with elite sporting skills and musical excellence, and further financial support for Care Leavers.

The offer changes year-on-year, so if you have a concern but cannot find the information relating to your Year of Entry to the University of Leicester, please email welfare@le.ac.uk with your details and we will help you look into your circumstances.

If you started at University of Leicester before 2013/14 and need information on your relevant package, or feel you have a reason to check your eligibility, please email Student Support Services or contact them on 0116 252 2448.

Information on 2016/17 Entry and beyond will be available in due course, and a link will appear on the Student Welfare Service pages.

You may qualify for help from the University of Leicester Hardship Fund if you meet our criteria for support. The Hardship Fund is available to all students. Please see our page on Hardship Funds.
