University Of Glasgow Funding


As a commitment to both supporting new students and rewarding academic excellence, the University of Glasgow offers a wide range of financial support. The University also offers funding opportunities to its current students wanting to carry out a project or a piece of research away from the University.


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