    Financial help from Middlesex

    Most UK/EU undergraduate students can get loans to cover their fees and, depending on your family's income, you might be entitled to more help from the government in the form of loans or grants. International students may also be able to access financial support from their government.

    We recognise that this help is not enough for some students and we do not want anyone to be discouraged from studying with us because of their financial situation.

    The first section of the list below contains scholarships and awards for new students entering their first year at Middlesex.

    The second section contains scholarships and awards for those who are continuing into their second or third year of undergraduate study at Middlesex.

    The final section contains scholarships and awards for which postgraduate students can apply, including our Dean's Academic Excellence Scholarship, worth up to 50% of the Masters fee. We recognise that postgraduate study can give you the edge in today's competitive job market so we offer these scholarships and awards to support ambitious and academically gifted graduates in achieving their career goals.
