Scholarships & Additional Funding
Additional funding from Leeds Beckett University
Leeds Beckett Care Leavers & Estranged Students 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.
Primary Carers Bursary
This bursary is intended to assist full-time undergraduate students who have responsibility as primary carer for a dependent adult that will continue whilst they are studying. The amount payable will be assessed based on individual circumstances, up to a maximum award of £1,500.
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 details, on 0113 812 6701.

The scholarships are awarded to first year students who are the first in their family to go to university and are based on academic merit, with funding for the scheme provided by Leeds Beckett graduates.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com if you applied via UCAS. If you applied directly to us, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
