Need some help funding your studies?

Richmond has scholarships available for both our Undergraduate and Graduate programmes. Click on the links above and find out if you are eligible to apply.

Once you have been made an offer to study with us, you will automatically be reviewed for scholarship eligibility.

Richmond’s Office of Financial Assistance is available to help students access a variety of funding programs including Scholarship (academic merit based) awards, Grant awards and Student Loans to assist students with meeting their fees and living expenses. It is important to remember that in nearly all cases, scholarships and financial assistance will only cover a portion of the annual tuition fees. You will need to meet the rest and all other costs, yourself. Eligibility for the programs varies greatly based on the student’s academic standing, nationality and level of financial need.

On a yearly average Richmond students receive over one million pounds in financial assistance coming from both, governments and foundations and Richmond’s own generous scholarship programme.

Cost of Living in UK

According to research by The UK Council For International Student Affairs (UKCISA), student finance is the number one concern for international students. Almost a quarter (23%) of them said they didn’t have enough money to live on. Of those who had experienced hardship, 72% said they underestimated the cost of living. Only 25% of students took out possessions insurance, which is concerning as students are often targeted. Also, many have unrealistic expectations of how much time they can spend working.
