Scholarships and bursaries at St Mary's University

We provide a variety of scholarships for UK and EU students through the St Mary's Scholarship Scheme.

In accordance with St Mary’s regulations, only one scholarship can be applied per student record (except students awarded the St Mary's Cares Bursary).

Applicants who are assessed as eligible for more than one scholarship should reject one of their awards. Alternatively, student records will be adjusted at enrolment stage.
