University scholarships, bursaries and discounts

Deferral and transferral

University of Leicester scholarships are awarded for the year that you start at the University, not the year that you apply. The information on this website refers to 2020 year of entry only and may be subject to change.

Deferring from 2020 to 2021

If you apply in 2020 for deferred entry in 2021 you will fall under the 2021 funding arrangements (when those are confirmed).

Transferring between courses

Transferring within the University of Leicester

If you change your degree programme within the first few weeks of University you will still be potentially eligible for the University of Leicester Scholarship. If you choose to restart your degree the following year, you'll be re-considered against the scholarship criteria for that year, rather than the year current one.

Transferring to Leicester from another University

If you are transferring from another university, you will potentially still be eligible for the University of Leicester Scholarship, provided that you transfer in the first or second year of your course.
