  • Annual household income of less than £50,000 (appropriate supporting documents must be provided) 
  • Academic achievement of three grade Bs at A-level (or equivalent qualification) from a UK recognised institution
  • Applications will only be considered from candidates who have attended an open day or visited the University and spoken to a member of our Admissions department. Information about visiting the University 

For further information please visit our bursaries frequently asked questions page.

Please note: We have a limited number of bursaries and meeting the above criteria does not guarantee entitlement.

Deadline & Selection Process

  • The deadline for submitting bursary applications is 31st May
  • Candidates who are shortlisted will be invited for a face-to-face interview by the Bursary Panel at Regent’s in June
  • Successful candidates will be notified in July each year
  • We will endeavour to notify all bursary applicants about the outcome of their application. However if you have not heard from the Bursary Panel by the end of July then your bursary application has not been successful
  • For further information please visit our bursaries frequently asked questions page

If you wish to change your chosen degree programme after enrolling at the University, the Bursary can be transferred to your new programme within the Faculty of Business & Management or the Faculty of Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences. The transfer must take place before the registration cut-off date. You must also meet any additional entry requirements relating to your new programme.

In order to maintain the scholarship for the full duration of your studies, you must pass each module at the first attempt with a mark of at least 60%.


Before you apply please ensure that you have read the terms and conditions (see below), and have the following documents ready:

  • Scanned proof of household income of less that £50,000 
  • Scanned copy of one academic reference or letter of recommendation. This should be written by a member of staff who knows you well, from the education institution you have attended most recently/are still attending – you may use your statement from your UCAS application (300-500 words)

Once you have submitted your form, please send copies of the documentation above to bursaries@regents.ac.uk. These must be submitted before the bursary deadline of 31 May 2017.

Many applicants will not have received the results of their secondary school qualifications by May. Where this is the case, we will offer you a conditional bursary, based on your predicted grades, and operate a waiting list from June onwards. Final decisions and unconditional bursary offers will be made in August, following the publication of exam results.

Apply online

In support of your application, you will be asked the following questions. Please ensure you have your answers ready to copy and paste into the form before you begin. Each question has a 150-word limit:

  • Why did you choose Regent’s University London?
  • Why did you choose your degree programme?
  • What contribution will you make towards student life at Regent’s?
  • Please outline any extra-curricular activities that you feel are relevant to support your application. The Bursary Panel is particularly keen to find out more about activities where you have contributed to school life/the local community/volunteering and your past achievements

Applicable Programmes

The Regent’s Bursary applies to all undergraduate programmes. It does not apply to students in the first year of degree programmes with integrated foundation. Students enrolling on a degree programme with integrated foundation at Regent’s are eligible to apply for the Regent’s bursary once they have commenced their foundation-level studies. If successful, the bursary would then apply to their degree-level studies.

Scholarships and bursaries are limited to one award per student, with the highest value scholarship or bursary applying in such cases where one student is eligible to receive more than one award.
