National Scholarship Programme

LJMU will be awarding 1294National Scholarships to students joining the University in 2014. Each award is worth £2,000 and this money does not have to be repaid.

The National Scholarship Programme (NSP) is specifically designed to support students from England (and the European Union) who come from low income households. In order to be considered for this funding, your household income must be £16,000 a year or less and you must be a full-time or part-time first year undergraduate on your first course at university, therefore continuing students are ineligible to apply.

Unlike other LJMU awards, these Scholarships are only awarded in your first year of study. If successful, you will receive a cash bursary of £2,000. Funding will be awarded on a pro-rata basis to successful part-time students. EU students will only be eligible to apply for the fee waiver element of the NSP.

Payments will be made in two instalments to the value of 50% via BACS from the Student Loan Company into the bank you have supplied them.

Please note:
  • In addition to household income, you will be expected to achieve a minimum of 280 UCAS tariff points from three units at A2 level or equivalent alternative entry qualifications or experience.
  • Successful students are selected on the basis of their household income and their personal statement.
  • If you are awarded a National Scholarship, you will not be eligible for an LJMU Bursary in your first year at LJMU.
  • The National Scholarship Programme is not open to students from Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland but remember, you are still entitled to apply for other LJMU scholarships. Click here for more details.
  • Students completing a foundation year are not eligible.
