We offer a range of scholarships, including those that recognise academic excellence and those that support students with talent in music, sports and esports.

We also offer scholarships to high-achieving international students and those referred by a Roehampton alumnus.

Tuition fee loans

If you are UK citizen, aiming to undertake an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, you can apply for a tuition fee loan.

The loans are only repayable when you graduate and earn a certain amount, and can be supplemented in some cases by a loan covering the cost of living.
