Undergraduate Financial Support

There is financial support available to make studying at Leeds Arts University an affordable and a valuable investment in your future.

The following information is for undergraduate students starting their course of study in September 2020.

There will be no upfront costs of the new fees. Tuition fee loans and loans for living costs are available for all students. In some cases students may be eligible for grants, depending on family income. Other support is available as follows:

Cash Bursary

In 2020 the University will provide a cash bursary for new entrants whose family income is below £25,000 per annum and therefore are in receipt of a higher rate student maintenance loan. This cash bursary will be £250 in the first year, £350 in the second year and £500 in the third year. 

Eligibility for the Cash Bursary will be based on the information submitted to the Student Loan Company each year. Students will receive confirmation of eligibility over the Easter Period each year, with payment details given as part of the confirmation.

Internally Progressing Students

In September 2020 a one-off cash scholarship of £500 payable (only in the first year) is available to students who progress directly from one of the University’s further education courses to one of the University’s undergraduate courses. 

There is no application process for this bursary. Eligibility will be based on reports of those students who have enrolled and previous study. Payments will be made based on students attendance later in the first semester.

Support for Costs of Materials

We provide all students with financial support for materials in each year of study. This is £55 in each of their first two years and then £75 in the final year of study.
