Bursaries and scholarships are grants given to students that they do not need to pay back. At York St John University, we have a range of scholarships and bursaries for our students.
The Boohoo Scholarship
The Boohoo Scholarships are created as a partnership between online fashion retailer Boohoo and the York St John University London campus. The scholarships cover fees on one of the following courses:
All three of these courses specialise in a rapidly expanding area of business innovation: design, fashion and fitness. Each course offers a compelling combination of academic insight and hands-on, practical experience. They all include an essential, industry-experience module.
For this scholarship you’ll need to get creative with:
- A 500-word written pitch for your business idea
- A five-minute video to bring your idea to life
- 100 words telling us why you think you should be the one to receive this scholarship
The scholarships are available for UK and EU students only and the closing date is 31st July 2019. Full entry details, plus terms and conditions can be found here. Scholarship terms and conditions here.
Postgraduate Progression Scholarships
For students graduating from York St John University Undergraduate degrees in 2019 and continuing directly onto Postgraduate study, special reductions apply:*
- 50% reduction in course fees if you achieve a 1st
- 35% reduction if you achieve a 2:1
- 20% reduction if you achieve a 2:2
York St John University Alumni who choose to return to study with us at a later date receive a 10% reduction on fees, but this cannot be applied on top of the scholarships above.
*applies to all taught MA and MSc programmes, except for Physiotherapy (Pre-registration) MSc and Occupational Therapy (Pre-registration) MSc. PGCE courses are also not included in the scholarships.
Funding for PGCE Students
The Government is now offering bursaries for UK and EU students enrolled on Initial Teacher Training courses.
The amount you are entitled to will depend on the classification of the Undergraduate degree you hold and the subject your PGCE focuses on. Find out more about Funding for PGCE students
Other sources of funding
Whatever you are studying, there are likely to be research councils, charities or societies you can apply to for funding. These grants are competitive, but it is worth finding out which of them you may be eligible for.
