University of Sunderland Scholarships 2014/15

The University of Sunderland is investing over £10 million in financial support for 'home' and EU students joining us in 2014, and we have a number of generous scholarship packages for new undergraduate students.

A scholarship - also known as a bursary - is financial support that you don't have to pay back. It is not a loan, which you do have to pay back.
