We appreciate the investment students make in their education.


To help with the financial responsibility of students, we offer a range of scholarships as well as an Access to Learning Fund (also known as the Hardship Fund).

The University of Worcester is actively working to create more scholarship and prize opportunities, so please revisit this page for further updates.

£1,000 Academic Achievement Scholarships

The University awards scholarships of £1,000 to eligible undergraduate students in their first and second year of a degree course or first year of a Foundation degree on the basis of their academic achievement at the University. Students do not apply for these scholarships as they are awarded to eligible students who achieve 120 credits at Grade A- or higher during the 22/23 academic year. 

£2,000 Choral Scholarships

In partnership with Worcester Cathedral, Choral Scholarships are available to young men with counter-tenor, tenor and baritone/ bass voices and are aimed at encouraging young singers to become part of the long-standing tradition of Cathedral Music, while pursuing a course of study. The scholarships are available to students in the first, second or third year of an undergraduate course.

Scholars will receive £2,000, paid in instalments over 12 months, private singing tuition and support from a Principal Lay Clerk. In addition to regular services, the post will give an opportunity to sing with the Cathedral Choir in concerts, recordings, tours and the world famous Three Choirs Festival, for which additional remuneration will be paid.

For further information please contact the Worcester Cathedral Music Administrator

Sports Scholarships

If you have an outstanding record of achievement in a particular sport and want to combine this talent with study at a university with a proven reputation, then you may be eligible for a sports scholarship at Worcester. Our sports scholarships and bursaries represent a very special partnership with some of the region’s top sports teams, including Worcestershire County Cricket Club (WCCC), Worcester Hockey Club and Worcester Wolves Basketball Club.
