University of Hull Bursary

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 Bursary, students will need to register for a full three or four-year degree programme. Registration for partial awards will make students ineligible for the bursary.    

How much can I get?

This is a one-off non-repayable award of £3,000 given in your first year of study to all those with an annual residual household income of less than £25,000.
