Scholarships, Studentships & Bursaries
Scholarships, Studentships and Bursaries are funded by both the University and our individual academic schools. The International Education Centre also supports international students through a range of awards for international students.
The School of Psychology and Bangor University has a number of scholarships and bursaries available to help fund your undergraduate studies.
International Undergraduate Psychology Scholarships
UG Gold Scholarships: Psychology has a limited number of International top up scholarships worth up to £4K (in addition to the Scholarships awarded by the IEC). These apply to the 1st year of undergraduate study only. Applicants would be expected to be able to demonstrate exceptional academic ability and a financial hardship. Applications must be received by 1st May 2018 and should consist of a statement outlining the applicants academic credentials and financial situation including any supporting documentation and ideally should be submitted along with the application to enable an early decision.
As you would expect from a university that places great emphasis on student support, Bangor is keen to offer extra help to students. Bursaries and scholarships worth over £3.7M are available for new and returning students in September 2017.
For new students in 2018, these include Merit Scholarships of up to £3,000 for those who excel in the annual Entrance Scholarships (The closing date is 15 January 2018 for 2018 entry).

Other Sources of Funding
There are many government and non-government organisations that provide scholarship schemes enabling international students to source funding to study at a UK university. Students should contact the Ministry of Education or Education Department in their country, as they should have details of scholarship opportunities for students wishing to study overseas. They will also be able to advise the government’s conditions for studying abroad. Students should also contact the British Council office in the country of origin, which should have details of British scholarship schemes. If there is no British Council office in the country, then the nearest British Embassy or High Commission should be contacted.
