Studentship

2017 Entry

What is it for?

To help those least able to afford any remaining up-front costs. 

In order to be eligible for the University of Hull Studentship, students will need to register for a full three or four-year degree programme. Registration for partial awards will make students ineligible for the Studentship.    

How much can I get?

This is a one-off non-repayable award of £1,000 or equivalent benefit package given in your first year of study to all those with an annual residual household income of less than £25,000. Information on how your household income is calculated is available here.

You may choose to receive the Studentship in cash, as an accommodation discount if you are in university owned or managed accommodation, as a tuition fee waiver, or in any combination of these options. If you choose to receive all or part of the Studentship as cash, you will be paid in three instalments:

  • December (25%)
  • February (25%)
  • May (50%)

How do I apply?

You will be automatically considered for this award and do not need to apply directly to the University, as long as you gave your consent to share your information when applying for your student finance with Student Finance England.

Please note: Contact SFE directly on 0300 100 0607 if you did not give your consent to share your information.

After applying for their Tuition Fee Loan, EU students should be sent an EU17B form by Student Finance England to complete, detailing their household income. If you do not receive this form please call them on +44 (0)141 243 3570 to request one.

When do I pay it back?
