Scholarships and discounts
We are committed to attracting the brightest and the best students to Leicester regardless of background. At Leicester, we don't want fears about finance to stop prospective students from considering university. We estimate over half our new students will receive some support.
We offer two main kinds of undergraduate scholarship, as well as some specialist scholarships for students with talents beyond academia.
