Bursaries and Scholarships
- Leeds has made one of the largest investments in financial support in the higher education sector. It is committed to encouraging students from all backgrounds and it expects to provide around 1 in 3 of its students with financial support. It doesn't have to be repaid.
- Eligible UK students from England can choose between: a tuition fee discount; a discount on University-owned accommodation; a cash sum.
- Eligible students from elsewhere in the EU can only receive financial help from the University as a tuition fee discount.
- Students most in need will receive support of up to £6,000 in their first year and £3,000 a year after that. Other eligible students will receive up to £3,000 a year on a sliding scale depending on household income.
- Many students who've come to Leeds through its Reach for Excellence programme or through some of its access schemes for adult students will be eligible for the highest level of support: £6,000 in year 1 and £3,000 in years 2 and 3.
- Through its extensive relationships with schools and colleges it is well placed to find talented young people from disadvantaged backgrounds both locally and nationally. It is making significant further investment to provide the tools to enable the ‘most able, least likely’ to apply to research-intensive universities, and Leeds in particular.
- Leeds continues to grow its successful talent-spotting programme, Reach for Excellence, which targets the brightest young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, offering them an intensive two-year programme (in Years 12 and 13) of academic and study skills support and further cementing its relationships with local schools and colleges. Reach for Excellence also provides a route into the University of Leeds through Access to Leeds (see below). The NfER/Sutton Trust evaluation of Reach for Excellence has shown that young people on the programme: are more likely to enter higher education than their peers (85% vs 59%); are twice as likely to enter a research-intensive university; and that 25% progress to the University of Leeds.
- Reach for Excellence is supplemented with subject-specific programmes across all faculties, including 'How to be a Doctor?' and 'Pathways to Accountancy', and the intention is to grow the programme to work with a total of 600 young people per year.
- Students on Leeds’ talent schemes qualify for Access to Leeds (A2L), which is also open to direct applications from schools as well as those applying through UCAS. A2L provides a contextual admissions route into the University of Leeds. Subject to successful completion of the A2L module, A2L applicants receive the standard offer as published in the university prospectus, as well as the alternative A2L offer, two grades or 40 UCAS points below the standard offer.
- The University awards a range of scholarships based on a variety of criteria, including financial need and academic excellence. Sport and research scholarships are also available for students to apply for. The University’s scholarships are highly competitive and there is a limited pot of funding available for each.

Reddin Survey of University Tuition Fees
The table below lists the annual tuition fees that were charged to new students entering the first year of an undergraduate degree or a one-year taught postgraduate course, most recently for those entering in September/October 2013. Note that these are tuition fees only for the full academic year and do not include accommodation, living costs or travel costs, etc. The fees information for this university is an extract from the Reddin Fees Survey – a survey of UK university tuition fees. See the full table listing all universities participating in the survey.
Fees for UK nationals with UK residence (home students) and EU nationals with EU residence (EU students) are the same, whereas fees for other overseas students are typically differentiated by course, usually in two bands: one for arts/classroom based courses and the other, typically higher, for science/laboratory based courses (fees for medicine and dentistry are generally much higher). Universities in Scotland and Northern Ireland may charge a different fee for RUK (rest of the UK) students.
Postgraduate course fees do not necessarily fit neatly in fee bands and further enquiry should be made to a university (or its website) for the exact fees for a particular course.
|Year||UK and EU Students||Overseas – Classroom||Overseas – Laboratory|
|* Postgraduate Taught Home/EU 5100.00-10000.00, some courses may attract a higher fee than 10000.00, please contact the University directly for further guidance|
