Undergraduate scholarships and bursaries

Each year, DMU offers a range of scholarships and bursaries. In 2020, for undergraduate full-time UK students, these include:

Access Scholarship

£1,000 cash per year. The Access to Higher Education Scholarship is available if you are accepted onto a course with an Access to HE qualification (where it is an entry requirement for the course).

Care Leavers Bursary

£1,000 cash per year. This bursary is available to eligible students who come to university directly from care.

Estranged Students Bursary

£1,000 cash per year. This bursary is available to eligible students who are identified as estranged from their family by Student Finance England (SFE).

NHS funding

The UK Government is reforming NHS bursaries. Students studying nursing, midwifery and allied health subjects now have access to the same loans system as other students.

From August 2020, all nursing, midwifery and many allied health professional degree students will receive at least £5,000 a year with up to £3,000 further funding available. Find out more here.

Unite Foundation Scholarship

The Unite Foundation Scholarship is jointly offered by DMU and the Unite Foundation. The scholarship offers care leaver and estranged students a free student bedroom in Newarke Point for a maximum of three years of eligible study. Find out more here.

Earning while you study

We recognise that many of our students want to work part-time while they are studying. Some of our courses include paid placements while others allow time in their weekly schedule for part-time work on or off campus.

Stoneygate Scholarship

The Stoneygate Scholarship offers three scholarships worth £4,000 per academic year.
