EU Scholarships and Travel Bursary

From 2021, the University of Suffolk will offer a range of EU Scholarships providing alternative financial support in the absence of student loans. The amount of this scholarship will vary on the course you are applying for, but it is intended to bring your fee into line with the fee paid by UK students. Full eligibility criteria have not yet been finalised, but we expect the majority of our EU students will be eligible for our scholarship. This will apply for the duration of your course with the scholarship discount being applied each year to your tuition fee.

Final eligibility criteria and scholarship details will be published on this page shortly. 


The University of Suffolk is pleased to offer Scholarships to the value of £1,500 to all EU nationals who enrol onto an Undergraduate degree in 2020/21. The Scholarship will be paid across the first and second year of study. 

Eligibility Criteria

  • Be a new student to the University of Suffolk in 2020, starting in the first year of your course
