LSE offers around £4 million in scholarships and financial support awards every year, issued primarily on the basis of financial need.
Our LSE Bursary (UK students) offers awards between £500 - £4,000 renewable for each year of study, based on household income. UK students do not need to apply separately for the LSE Bursary – we will access the information provided to the Student Finance when applying for the maintenance loan to determine their eligibility.
An LSE Accommodation Bursary is available for UK nationals, designed to encourage students from lower-income households to apply for first year accommodation in halls. Bursary amounts typically range between £750 to £2,500.
Discretionary Bursaries are also available for UK students who face exceptional financial need.
LSE’s Uggla Family Scholars Programme awards 7 scholarships for new UK undergraduate students worth over £20,000 per year. For each academic year, Scholarships provide partial tuition fee awards and full financial support for the Scholars’ term-time accommodation and other term-time expenses, including food, household bills, travel, study books and social events. Awards are renewed for each subsequent year of study, subject to satisfactory academic progress.
Students and parents/carers can visit our Fees and Financial Support pages for more information about bursaries, scholarships, tuition fees and government loans.
