What are scholarships?

Scholarships are financial awards provided by the University, an organisation or individual that do not need to be repaid. They are usually based on academic achievement. There are hundreds of scholarships available for first-year students attending the University for the first time.

A scholarship lets you focus on what matters

Scholarships can help pay your tuition fees and may also support you throughout your studies.
