Scholarships, grants and bursaries

At Birmingham we ensure that fears about finance do not constrain prospective students from considering university and that excellence is rewarded. The University offers a range of additional financial support for students studying at Birmingham in the form of scholarships, bursaries and other awards.

Chamberlain Award

If your household income is below £36,000 you will be entitled to additional financial support from the University in the form of a Chamberlain Award.

Scholarships and Bursaries

For a comprehensive list of all the awards on offer at the University for home/EU and international students, please consult the undergraduate or postgraduate funding databases.

Some of the scholarships we offer include:

Music scholarships

In recognition of the role that music plays within the University, we offer a number of Music Scholarships each year. Offering approximately 17 hours of musical tuition per year for three years (total cash value of £3,000), these scholarships are open to prospective students performing at a grade 8 standard in an instrument or vocals and have an offer of a place on a full-time undergraduate programme (other than a Music Department programme) at the University of Birmingham.

Sports scholarships

The University is rated amongst the very best in the country for sport and this status is reflected in the wide range of sport scholarships that we offer. Our flagship scheme, called the UBsport scholarships, offers awards from £3,500 up to £6,000 separated into bronze, silver and gold categories according to the level at which you are competing.

We have also introduced 20 new Sport Performance Awards, which are available to undergraduates entering the University who have competed at country level or above within their sport. The awards offer £1,000 in services for the 3 years of study, dependant on upholding a minimum of 2:1 academic progression.

Lloyds Scholars Programme

Open to full-time undergraduate students with an assessed household income of under £25,000 who are commencing their studies in September 2015, the Lloyds Scholars Programme offers a unique package of annual bursaries, performance-related awards, volunteering opportunities and paid internships.
