Undergraduate funding

Bursaries & scholarships 2019/20

In addition to any government loan's you may be eligible for, Ravensbourne University London has a limited amount of bursaries and scholarships available to undergraduate students.  

This financial support has been designed to assist in the costs of travel, meals and/or course equipment. Due to restricted funding, and a large number of eligible students, our financial support is limited and is subject to change.

We 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 calculator or the student budget planner useful tools to help figure out a realistic budget. For more advice on money management we also recommend you visit
