Scholarships, grants and bursaries

We believe anyone who works hard or shows great talent should be encouraged. At Herts, we offer a range of non-repayable scholarships and bursaries to outstanding individuals.

Some financial support opportunities are sponsored directly by the University. Others are sponsored by our commercial and professional partners, funded by philanthropic donations or are part of a Government scheme (e.g. the NHS Learning Support Fund).

If you are awarded a scholarship, grant or bursary, you will receive the amount of money specific to that scheme. They are offered based on a range of criteria. Take a look at the options below to find out more.
