Bursaries and Scholarships
- Listed below is the financial support Royal Holloway will be offering to students in 2013–14 and support measures designed to widen access to university education.
- 358 National Scholarships In 2013–14, as part of the National Scholarship Programme (NSP) for students from low income backgrounds, we will match the £537,000 allocated to Royal Holloway by the government for the award of National Scholarships. We will provide 358 national scholarships in total, each valued at £3,000, taken as tuition fee discounts and other benefits for the first year of undergraduate study. In subsequent years continuing students in receipt of full living cost grant and having a SLC verified family income of less than £25,000 will be eligible for a Royal Holloway bursary of £2,500. The Royal Holloway National Scholarships will be awarded to the 358 eligible students who achieve the highest three grades at GCE A2-level or equivalent in those subject elements of their academic qualifications which are specified in their RHUL UCAS offer as requirements for admission for their programme of undergraduate study at RHUL. AS and GCSE results will be used to differentiate between eligible entrants with similar A2-level results where necessary. In order to be eligible for the national scholarship programme students must meet the following national criteria: a) Student Loan Company (SLC) verified residual family income of under £25,000, b) English Domicile, c) Full time student studying an undergraduate degree.
