Solent University offers bursaries and scholarships to different groups of students. Scholarships are based on merit, with awards for UK and EU/EEA students. Bursaries support students with varying circumstances (care leavers, carers, and estranged students).
There are also funds to support students from under-represented groups (based on different criteria). A local student bursary scheme is funded entirely by former Solent students, staff and friends of Solent University.
