If you choose to study with us, there are various sources of funding to which you can apply. Some are administered by the school, others by research bodies to which the school has links, and others by the University and central government sources. These opportunities are often specific to particular degree programmes, or to the fee-status of a student, so it is important to read all related information very carefully.

Overseas applicants may also be eligible for a range of school scholarships open to graduates from our North American partner institutions. North American students may bring Stafford loans as Nottingham is a FAFSA approved institution (code G08920).
International and EU students
The University of Nottingham offers a range of research scholarships for outstanding international and EU students.
Applicants must receive an offer of study before applying for our scholarships. Please note the closing dates of any scholarships you are interested in and make sure you submit your research course application in good time so that you have the opportunity to apply for them.
The International Office also provides information and advice for international and EU students on financing your degree, living costs, external sources of funding and working during your studies.
