Scholarships for International Students

There are only limited scholarships available for international students to help with the cost of studying in the UK.  Most scholarships will be awarded on academic merit and should be applied for well in advance of the beginning of your course.

New and prospective students

If you are applying to start a new course, you will find useful links on the Fees and Funding page about University of Leicester scholarships, as well as suggestions to help you find other sources of funding for your studies. 

Current students

Most scholarships are awarded before your course begins.  If your course has already started but you are having financial problems, you can find information on our pages for International Students in Financial Hardship or read our information on Budgeting for guidance on managing your money.
