Scholarships and bursaries

At the University of Sunderland, we want people with the capacity and capability to learn to be able to access higher education, no matter what their background or personal circumstances. Our generous scholarships and bursaries are financial awards that do not have to be paid back.

Financial support

Going to university is an exciting time. It's a milestone of your success and an investment in your future career. There's also a lot to think about, organise and pay for – and we understand that can be daunting.

Through our scholarships, we recognise and reward the academic achievements of our students or the promise they show in a specific subject area. Some scholarships are linked to courses or philanthropic donors. Through our bursaries we support students from groups underrepresented in higher education, who we identify as being in most financial need.
