University of Edinburgh financial support

The University of Edinburgh Scholarship

The University offers a generous financial package to domiciled students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The University will use the residual household income figure calculated by the Student Loans Company (SLC) when assessing your scholarship entitlement.

As students from Wales receive a Government grant of £5,100 towards tuition fees, scholarships they are awarded by the University will be capped at £3,900.

You are guaranteed to receive up to the following level of scholarship for each year of your degree programme if you are successful in taking up your offer of admission.

You will be able to use your scholarship to either contribute towards your tuition fee costs or towards your general living costs while at Edinburgh.
