Undergraduate study - 2021 entry

Other financial support

We spend millions of pounds every year to help students who want to study at Edinburgh. We offer the best financial aid package for undergraduate students in the UK.

We offer a number of other awards to new full-time undergraduate students. You should apply for this financial support as early as possible after applying for admission.

University scholarships  

UK students with children or adult dependants

If you are a UK student with children, in addition to fees and loans there are sources of funding which do not need to be repaid for which you may be eligible.

Disabled students

The Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) can be used to purchase specialist/assistive equipment, to employ personal assistants, and to cover other costs associated with your disability such as additional photocopying.

The amount available varies depending on which student funding body supports your fees and maintenance loans. It also varies depending on the kind of assistance you require.

We also have a Student Disability Service who may be able to assist with other useful information, including funding for disabled students who are not eligible to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowance.
