Scholarships and bursaries for Tier 4 (non EU/EEA) students 2020/21

Ravensbourne have a number of scholarships and bursaries available for our Tier 4 International students.

Please note that the international scholarships are only open to students who require a Tier 4 (General) student visa in order to study in the UK. This is subject to change.

Due to restricted funding and a large number of eligible students, our finance support is limited. It is designed to assist towards the costs of travel and/or course equipment.

We therefore, strongly advise all prospective students to consider all the costs of study including accommodation, travel, equipment and food whilst undertaking their course and to have alternative means of funding such as part time work and/or savings.

Students may find the student budget planner  a useful tool to help figure out a realistic budget.

Please click on the boxes below for information on the range of support we have available. 

We are now accepting applications for our 2020/21 Scholarships:
