Scholarships and bursaries

UK students

As a university recognised nationally and internationally for excellence in teaching, scholarship and research, we attract high-calibre, academically-gifted students.

The Academic Scholarship package is designed to reward the hard work and natural ability of full-time UK students applying to study with us, regardless of their household income. Students achieving: A*, A*, A in their A level examinations (or equivalent academic qualifications), and who place Lancaster as their firm choice, will be awarded a £2,000 Lancaster Scholarship during their first year of undergraduate studies.

In addition, Lancaster University offers a bursary package for students from England whose household incomes are less than £42, 600 per year.  >> More information on bursaries

EU students

Scholarships of £1,000 will also be available for EU undergraduate students at LUMS (i.e. those classified as 'EU' for fees purposes), provided they meet the necessary criteria. These scholarships are specifically intended to contribute to the cost of fees and will be awarded for the first year of study.

In order to qualify for this award, you will need to meet conditions slightly in excess of those required for guaranteed admission and make Lancaster your first choice. The precise conditions for obtaining a scholarship will be explained in your offer letter. If your offer is unconditional it will be made clear to you when the offer is made whether or not the offer includes a scholarship.
