Scholarships & Additional Funding
High Achievers Scholarship
Additional funding from Leeds Beckett University
Leeds Beckett Care Leavers’ Bursary
If you have been in care prior to starting university, you may be eligible for a bursary of £1,500 in each year that you remain enrolled on your undergraduate course.
You can find out more from our Bursary & Scholarship Officer by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
These scholarships are designed to help you receive technical, pastoral and financial support whilst developing your sporting performance alongside your studies.
You can find more information on our dedicated Sports Scholarships page.
Tenancy Deposit Scheme
If you have difficulty paying a deposit for your accommodation and are from a low income background, you are classed as an independent or estranged student or you are in receipt of welfare benefits, you may be able to apply for help through the Leeds Beckett Hardship Scheme.
Our Hardship Funds may be able to provide you with additional help to meet unexpected financial hardship you may face at university. Most awards made from the Hardship Funds do not have to be repaid.
Please contact Money Support for more detail, on 0113 812 6701.
The University will pay the first £200 of a laptop deemed necessary though your Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) needs assessment if your household income is under £25,000. The payment will be made directly to a pre-approved supplier.
You should contact Disability Advice for more detail about the application process for this support.
Additional funding from the Government
You may also be eligible to apply for additional funding from the Government. Grants and allowances currently on offer include:
- Childcare Grant
- Parents’ Learning Allowance
- Adult Dependents’ Grant
- Disabled Students’ Allowance
More information is available on the gov.uk website.
Unfortunately, you are only allowed to defer for one year. If you have extenuating circumstances that may require your deferral for a further year then please email us at email@example.com with full details of those circumstances so that your request can be considered. Please also provide your full name, UCAS personal ID and course.
If you applied through UCAS, it is likely that we will receive some, if not all of your examination results via UCAS. If you have been asked to send your results in to us, this will be detailed on your offer letter/UCAS Track. It is very important that you do so as soon as possible after receiving your results. They can be faxed to us on 0113 812 3144 or scanned to firstname.lastname@example.org if you applied via UCAS. If you applied directly to us, please send them to email@example.com. Please make sure you have put your name and Personal ID/Leeds Beckett number on the correspondence to avoid any delays in confirming your place with us.
