Scholarships for Home and International students
NCH offers a number of prestigious scholarships to students who demonstrate exceptional academic achievement and potential.
There is no scholarship application. All applicants for our undergraduate degree programmes are automatically considered for a scholarship award.
Scholarship awards are a £500 bank transfer payment in GBP which a student will receive after the Reading Week of their first term of studies. Students must complete enrolment, continue their studies through to Reading Week, and pay any outstanding fees in order to receive the award. The £500 scholarship award applies for the first year of studies only.
Home students may also be eligible to apply for a means-tested bursary (please see Bursaries for Home Students below).
Bursaries for Home students
Please note that only the following home fees students are eligible to apply for a means-tested bursary:
- UK nationals who have lived in the UK, EEA, Switzerland, or Gibraltar for at least the last three years AND have lived continuously there between 31 December 2020 and the start of their course
- Irish nationals who have lived in the UK and Islands for three years before the start of their course
- EU, EEA and Swiss citizens with settled status (or Indefinite Leave to Remain or permanent residency) who have been ordinarily resident in the UK or Islands for the three years immediately before the start of their course (unless the residency in the UK or Islands was mainly for the purpose of education)
Unfortunately, EU, EEA and Swiss citizens with pre-settled status are not eligible to apply for one of our means-tested bursaries.
Students can receive both a scholarship and bursary award.
The College awards bursaries on a yearly basis and at three levels:
- Household income up to £18,000: £3,000 bursary
- Household income £18,001 to £30,000: £2,000 bursary
- Household income £30,001 to £42,875: £1,000 bursary
Students who are estranged from their parents and/or guardians and are thus independent, or students under Local Authority Care, may be eligible for a further bursary award of up to £1,000 in addition to any standard bursary award. Additional documentation may be requested to prove a student’s estrangement or care leaver status.
You can take your bursary as cash to help with your living costs, to help pay your accommodation, or even to help with tuition fees. It is up to you how you choose to use your bursary. Bursary funds will be disbursed in three payments over the academic year.
You can apply directly for a bursary here. (Please only fill out this form if you are a home fees student)
If you are applying to SLC (or other national schemes) for a maintenance loan, please select the option to share financial information with NCH as the institution you choose to enrol with. In such cases, we will automatically have access to most, if not all, of the necessary evidence regarding your financial circumstances. You will still be required to submit the above application in order to commence the assessment process.
Please note that in some cases, we may require additional information in order to carry out our assessment. If this applies, you will be contacted.
