Student Finance

Eligible English domiciled students can access the undergraduate financial support package from Student Finance England. You can access this support even if you have received loans to study an undergraduate or postgraduate course before. 

Depending on your household income you may also be eligible to receive support from the University of Sheffield Bursary Scheme. 

Further information about the support available can be found on our undergraduate funding pages.

As a postgraduate student you can not apply for undergraduate scholarships.   

Students who live in the EU can apply for an undergraduate tuition fee loan from Student Finance England to cover the full cost of the tuition fees. 

Further information about the tuition fee loans can be found on our undergraduate funding pages.

Students who live in the devolved nations can access postgraduate support from their funding providers. Awards and eligibility criteria vary.
