Scholarships and bursaries

The University offers a range of scholarships and bursaries which assist students financially. Our aim is to ensure that ambitious, creative and academically gifted students who wish to broaden their opportunities through university education are not limited by their financial circumstances or backgrounds.

The Chancellor’s Fund

The fund, awarded bi-annually, may support those who need modest awards of between £100 – £1,000 to assist with extracurricular activities – cultural, voluntary, sporting – and wider training, travel bursaries, research and priority projects in line with the University’s strategic plan. The Fund has previously helped students with their travel costs to allow them to take up volunteering opportunities and to offer support with new start ups and PhD expenses.

The University of Northampton International Scholarship

This is a merit-based scholarship that provides up to 30% reduction in tuition fees that may be available to international students. All full-time courses taught on campus fall within the scheme and you will be considered for a scholarship on the basis of your academic achievement.

EU Undergraduate Scholarship

We have 50 scholarships of £1,000 per year, up to a maximum of three years. These are based on academic merit and you must be based in an EU country other than the UK to apply (other eligibility criteria apply).

For full details on the scholarships available along with eligibility criteria please visit northampton.ac.uk/scholarships

Please note: other financial support may also be available from the University of Northampton to help students to alleviate financial hardship.

Eligibility criteria apply.

Elena Hristova studied Fashion BA (Hons) and was a 2017 scholarship recipient. She says “I was given the opportunity to undertake a work placement at the high-quality leather manufacturer, Pittards, which I was only able to accept as the scholarship covered part of my expenses. I can confidently say that my university and professional experience wouldn’t have been the same without this.”
