Scholarships and Bursaries
At Lancaster, we believe that funding concerns should not stop any student with
the talent to thrive.
We offer a range of scholarships
and bursaries to help cover the cost of tuition fees and/or living expenses.
Fees for EU applicants
The UK government has announced that students who will begin their course in
2021 will no longer be eligible to receive the same fee status and financial
support entitlement as UK students. This also applies to those who have deferred
entry until 2021. Lancaster University has confirmed that students from EU Member
States in 2021-22 and later, will now be charged the same tuition fees as other
Undergraduate tuition fees
Fees are set by the UK Government annually, and subsequent year’s fees may be subject to
increases. For international applicants, any annual increase will be capped at 4% of the
previous year’s fee. For more information about tuition fees, including fees for
Study Abroad and Work Placements, please visit our

Lancaster is proud to be one of only a handful of UK universities to have a collegiate system.
We have nine colleges in total, and every student belongs to a college, whether you live on
campus or choose to commute. All students pay a small college membership fee, which supports the
running of college events and activities. Once you have been accepted into a college, you will
receive confirmation and be required to pay a college membership fee.
For students starting in 2020, the fee is £40 for undergraduates and research students and £15
for students on one-year courses. Fees for students starting in 2021 have not yet been set.
Computer Equipment and Internet access
To support your studies, you will also require access to a computer, along with reliable
internet access. You will be able to access a range of software and services from a Windows, Mac,
Chromebook or Linux device. For certain degree programmes, you may need a specific device, or
we may provide you with a laptop and appropriate software - details of which will be available
on relevant programme pages. A dedicated
IT support helpdesk is available
in the event of any problems.
The University provides limited
to assist students who do not have the required IT equipment or Broadband support in place.
