Undergraduate scholarships and bursaries

We are investing almost £5 million in 2019–20 to provide a package of bursaries and financial support to our students including schemes which will mean even more students can access financial support from the University.

"I received a scholarship of £1,000 in my first year as a result of my grades at college, which really helped me make the most of my first year. It helped because I was still getting to grips with budgeting and I made a bit of a hash of it. It meant that I could afford to go to the events I wanted to in Sheffield."

    "To not have to worry about my living situation and the costs involved in studying has been so reassuring. Because my past has been so unstable, I'm always thinking about the future, that's why I've used the financial support I receive to start saving for when I leave University and go off into the world."
