Applicable programmes

The Regent’s Bursary applies to all undergraduate programmes. It does not apply to students in the first year of degree programmes with integrated foundation.

Students enrolling on a degree programme with integrated foundation at Regent’s are eligible to apply for the Regent’s bursary once they have commenced their foundation-level studies. If successful, the bursary would then apply to their degree-level studies. 

Scholarships and bursaries are limited to one award per student, with the highest value scholarship or bursary applying in such cases where one student is eligible to receive more than one award.

If you wish to change your chosen degree programme after enrolling at the University, the Bursary can be transferred to your new programme within the Faculty of Business & Management or the Faculty of Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences. The transfer must take place before the registration cut-off date. You must also meet any additional entry requirements relating to your new programme.
