We offer a range of bursaries, scholarships to well qualified students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

RUK Access Bursary

Glasgow has a long and proud tradition of providing financial support to talented students who (for reasons of financial hardship) might not be able to take a place at University. Our RUK Access Bursary is part of our commitment to continue to attract and support students from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Eligibility for this award is based on household-income:

Annual household income RUK Access Bursary for first year of study RUK Access Bursary for years 2, 3, 4 where tuition fees of £9,250 apply
Less than £25,001 £3,000 £2,000
£25,001 - £35,000 £2,000 £1,000

There is no application for the RUK Access Bursary, the information you provide in your application for fees and/or cost-of-living support to Student Finance England/Northern Ireland/Wales will be used to assess your eligibility for the bursary. In order for the University to assess your eligibility, you should agree to share your data on your application to Student Finance.

If you are required to repeat any year of study, the RUK Bursary will not be awarded for that year, however any extenuating circumstances will be taken in to consideration. In this instance, please contact scholarships@glasgow.ac.uk
