Scholarships and Waivers

Support for UK and EU students

University College Birmingham provides a range of support designed to encourage individuals to access programmes of study at undergraduate and postgraduate level and to be successful in their studies. Part of this support is in the form of financial support and other benefits.

The Kick-Start Scheme

For new students starting a full-time undergraduate or PGCE course, University College Birmingham will provide financial support in the form of the ‘The Kick-Start Scheme’. Eligible students will receive credit of up to £800, which can be used on a dedicated website to purchase course-related materials or on certain items within UCB. The great news is these funds don't need to be paid back!
