Department of Mathematics

Fees and funding

There are a number of funding options available to you as a student in the Department of Mathematics.

In addition to a student loan, you could be entitled to additional funding through a scholarship or bursary.


The following scholarships are made available to students in our Department for September 2020 entry. The Scholarships for September 2021 entry will be updated here shortly:

Department Scholarships

We offer a scholarship of £750 that will be paid to UK/EU mathematics undergraduates starting in September 2020 who obtain A* (Maths) AA at A-level or equivalent (excluding General Studies).

In addition we offer a £1,000 scholarship for all new UK undergraduates admitted by the Department of Mathematics who achieve A* in Mathematics and A*, A in two other A-levels (excluding General Studies).

These scholarships will be paid to those who hold a firm offer for one of our undergraduate mathematics courses by 1 August 2020. Both scholarships are entrance scholarships. Performance should be achieved in the first sitting (ie not re-taken).

International Excellence Scholarships

In addition to the International Mathematics Scholarships we will award up to 15 Department International Excellence Scholarships. These competitive awards are for the successful international applicants who have demonstrated the highest overall academic excellence. The awards are worth £2,000 per year of study on top of the International Mathematics Scholarship (making a total award of £3,000 for that year).

These excellence scholarships are for one academic year and are awarded to the best students each year, the decision being based on the previous years' exam results. Eight of these awards are specifically for students from Africa, China, India, Pakistan and Malaysia, and seven more will be open to any international student.

All international students will be considered automatically for these scholarships, and need not apply for it. Since the scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis, we do not expect to know who the recipients are until the beginning of the academic year.

International Mathematics Scholarships

For 2020 entry we are offering International Mathematics Scholarships, which are worth £1,000 per year of study. All new international students who satisfy the mathematical component of their entrance requirement will be awarded such a scholarship against their tuition fees.

The award, which lasts as long as your undergraduate degree, whether that is three or four years, is paid automatically in the first year; after that payment is subject to you maintaining at least a 65% exam average.

All international students will be considered automatically for this scholarship, and need not apply for it. We will notify you of your eligibility for the International Mathematics Scholarship as soon as we know whether you satisfy the entrance requirements.
