Scholarships and bursaries

Student in university classroom

With your support, we can provide transformative, life-changing opportunities to disadvantaged young people who need them the most, giving them the helping hand that they need to build a brighter future.

At ARU, we’re proud to welcome talented individuals, regardless of their background. In fact, 85% of our students share at least one characteristic of disadvantage.

But with your support, we can break down the barriers they face.

For young people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access higher education, our scholarships and bursaries can make a huge difference – a difference that helps them realise their potential.
