Government loans can be used to study anywhere in the UK and will be available for the duration of your degree.
What you will receive depends on your household income.
You make one online application for both your tuition fee loan and living cost support.
The University of Edinburgh Scholarship
In addition to government funding, we offer the University of Edinburgh Scholarship that many of you will be eligible to receive.
You may use your scholarship to contribute towards either your tuition fees or your general living costs while at Edinburgh. The amount you may receive depends on your household income.
The awards mean that university life away from home has been much more affordable and less burdensome. They have allowed me to buy all the relevant textbooks and a laptop.
Additional financial assistance
We also offer a number of other bursaries and scholarships to new full-time undergraduate students. You must apply for these bursaries and scholarships as early as possible after applying for admission.
Funding is available for UK students with children or adult dependants. We also offer financial support for disabled students.
Financial assistance may also be available once you are here from the Discretionary Fund for UK Students.
If you are studying part time you may be eligible to apply for funding.
