Undergraduate scholarships

In 2019 Brunel will be offering over 400 scholarships to Home, EU and International students.

Our scholarships are based on a whole range of criteria - are you eligible?

Our 2019/20 undergraduate scholarship and bursary package is outlined below. Meeting the eligibility criteria does not equate to an entitlement to a scholarship. 

How to apply for a Scholarship or Bursary at Brunel?

Our bursaries do not require an application. In the summer we will assess your grades and other eligibility criteria, such as household income and automatically award a bursary if found eligible, please see individual terms and conditions for full details.

Please note you must consent to the sharing of household data submitted to the Student Loans Company (SLC) in order for Brunel to access your data and assess your eligibility for a bursary. Please note Clearing applicants must ensure that they inform the SLC at the earliest opportunity that they are attending Brunel. This will then ensure that the SLC can provide relevant evidence that the applicant meets any relevant conditions before bursaries are awarded in the summer. Failure to do this will result in the applicant not being considered for a bursary.

Scholarships require an application, full details can be found below.

If you are eligible for more than one scholarship or bursary, you will be awarded the scholarship with the highest monetary value.
