Fee waiver

Care leavers starting undergraduate or PGCE courses at the University of Exeter will not have to pay tuition fees. If you have identified yourself as someone who has been in care on your UCAS application, the University of Exeter will contact you asking for further information.

Care leaver's bursary

The bursary is intended to help with the cost of accommodation during the summer vacation period, after your first and subsequent years of study (but not final year). The bursary amount is not fixed, but is decided by taking into account the additional cost of your accommodation needs.

Access to Exeter bursary

UK students who meet certain criteria may be eligible for the Access to Exeter bursary of £2,100 for the first year of your studies, and £1,550 from the second year onwards, for the duration of your undergraduate studies. For more information, please contact outreach@exeter.ac.uk.

Unite Foundation scholarship scheme (Streatham & St Luke's Campuses)

Each scholar currently receives free accommodation for three years in a Unite student building, and the award is complemented by access to activities and opportunities that support scholar employability. Scholarships are awarded annually. To download an application form, visit the Unite Foundation website at www.unitefoundation.co.uk/get-a-scholarship.
