How to apply for a 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.

The Academic Excellence scholarship is application based. We will update these pages when the scholarship opens for applications.
