Leeds Masters Scholarship

The Leeds Masters Scholarships aim to encourage students from under-represented groups to embark on a postgraduate qualification. The Scholarships are funded by the generous donations from our alumni through the University of Leeds Footsteps Fund and are for UK students paying postgraduate tuition fees at the UK rate. 

Alumni bursary 

If you are a former student of the University of Leeds you may be eligible for a 10% alumni tuition fee bursary. The University will pay 10% of the self-funded portion of your fees for each year of the course. If no fees are paid then no bursary is awarded. If you think you’re eligible, you need to contact the School’s admissions team.

Sanctuary Scholarships

We are pleased to offer scholarships for forced migrants to the UK. The Sanctuary Scholarship is open to people who wish to study any undergraduate, postgraduate or research degree.
