Financial help through scholarships, bursaries, charitable funds and loans

London South Bank University (LSBU) offers considerable financial help through scholarships, bursaries, charitable funds, loans and other financial support.

Access Bursary

If you’re from a lower-income family and are starting a course in September 2018 you could be eligible for an Access Bursary. We're offering up to 100 £1,000 cash bursaries for part-payment of fees or to spend on other university services.

Sports Scholarships

The Elite Sports Programme is run by our Academy of Sport to support talented sportsmen and women balance their sporting, academic and personal lives.

The programme is one of the largest in the UK and offers:

  • A scholarship of up to £3,000 to students participating in the Academy's focus sport, basketball. Applicants must be playing at a minimum of Basketball England National League Division 2
  • A bursary of up to £1,500 to students taking part in any sport.

Note that these scholarships can't be combined with LSBU's International Scholarship, offered to Overseas students.

All applications for the scholarship and bursary are considered by a panel with awards being made on merit. In exceptional circumstances, the panel may choose to award the applicant with a higher amount.
