If you’re going to be a full-time undergraduate at ARU and you’re from the UK, there’s a number of scholarships and bursaries you may be able to apply to. These include the Merit Scholarship for students who excel in their A-levels, the ARU Bursary for students from low-income households and Sport Scholarships for students who excel in sport.
There are also alumni discounts for students who want to progress to postgraduate study at ARU after they’ve completed their undergraduate degree there, as well as other scholarship opportunities open to postgraduates.
You can apply for multiple scholarships, but you’ll only be able to be awarded one. In the event where you have multiple successful scholarship applications, you’ll be awarded the highest-value one.
Scholarships and bursaries are non-repayable, so they don’t increase your student debt. They’re also additional to any support you’re entitled to from the government. As well as tuition fee loans and maintenance loans, the government offers additional financial support for certain groups of students such as the Disabled Students’ Allowance, the Childcare Grant and the Parents’ Learning Allowance.
