Your University Questions, Answered.

What is a scholarship? I'm confused! Jenny, Essex


Our Answer:

Scholarships are extra money you can get from your university on top of your student loan and bursary. They vary depending on the university, and unlike bursaries you have to apply for them, normally by submitting an application form or statement.  

You might be asking yourself, why do universities award scholarships? Well, they're sometimes offered to those who are high academic achievers, while others are aimed at students from lower income households.  

Lots of universities will publicise scholarships and how to apply for them on their websites. UEA is no different - take a look at our undergraduate scholarships and see if you could be in with a chance of some extra money!
