Scholarships for international students

We offer a range of scholarships. These are a form of financial aid you do not need to pay back.

York St John International Undergraduate Scholarship (York Campus only)

We offer a scholarship of £1,000 for all undergraduate (year 1 entry) fee paying international students. The scholarships are for undergraduate, in country courses at our York Campus (year 1 entry only). 

These scholarships do not apply to TNE or distance learning courses. The scholarship is applicable to the first year's fees only, not to each year of the programme.

The £1,000 will be automatically applied to your offer if you are successful in gaining a conditional offer.

Please note, PGCE applicants are not eligible for international scholarships.

York St John Global Undergraduate Scholarship (York campus only)*

International students who are successful in gaining offers for the following 7 undergraduate taught courses will be eligible for a scholarship worth £3,750 per year: 

Please note: to be eligible for this scholarship, students must be starting year 1 of the degree programme and must pay the first year's fees in full prior to enrolment. 

York St John Global Postgraduate Merit Scholarship (York Campus only)*

International students who are successful in gaining offers on postgraduate taught degree programmes at our York campus will be eligible for the following merit-based scholarships: 

  • Discount of £2,500 for those who achieved a 1st class undergraduate degree
  • Discount of £2,000 for those who achieved a 2:1 undergraduate degree
  • Discount of £1,500 for those who achieved a 2:2 undergraduate degree

Please note: if overseas undergraduate degrees do not use the UK classification system, our International Admissions team will work out your degree equivalency to UK classification before awarding a discount.

*Excludes all MBA programmes

Early Payment Discount (York and London Campuses)

A 5% early payment discount is available for all international postgraduate taught students (not applicable to undergraduate, Research, or PhD programmes) at both our York and London campuses.

Students must pay fees in FULL by 11 September 2023 to be eligible for the discount. Students on the LLM course would need to pay in full no later than 28 August 2023.

Paying in full before your CAS issued is the optimal because the discount can then be applied to your fees stated on your CAS.
