A number of scholarships are available for both full and part-time independent students.

Relay Scholarships

We offer several fully-funded scholarships for full- and part-time study, particularly aimed at those who might struggle to meet the cost of fees or are otherwise disadvantaged. The scholarships, available in partnership with the Relay Trust, are for candidates who either live in the South-West or are intending to serve there.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates of a UKME background or other under-represented groups and those with learning difficulties. We will provide comprehensive study support to any students on Relay Scholarships.

All applicants with a connection with the South-West will be automatically considered for a Relay Scholarship. Any enquiries should be directed to
