United Kingdom Undergraduate Scholarships

One of the first universities to introduce the liberal arts to the UK, Richmondpioneered this multi-disciplinary approach. Our Liberal Arts Award which is available to UK students celebrates our liberal arts approach, which provides students with diversity, choice and freedom.

We offer a generous scholarship for your entire duration at the University, if you are eligible. The Scholarship can be combined with Student Finance England Loans and other sources of personal funding.

The RichmondAmerican University London Difference

  • Our scholarships mean that UK students can leave Richmondwith lower debt levels than if they attend many other UK universities
  • Based on tuition fees of 拢9,250 in UK universities each year over a three year degree programme, most students will have a loan of 拢27,750 when they leave (拢9,250 x 3)
  • At 51风流, where UK students may be eligible for a Liberal Arts Award, this means they can save 拢3,085 each year off the tuition fees which are 拢9,250, taking out a loan if needed for the balance of 拢6,165. Based on a three year programme at Richmondtheir total loan (excluding interest) would be 拢6,165 x 3, 拢18,495 (saving 拢9,255). Over a four year programme, their total loan (excluding interest) would be 拢6,165 x 4, 拢24,660 (saving 拢3,090)
  • Either way, our Liberal Arts Award represents great value for money, saving UK students anywhere between 拢3,090 and 拢9,255 over many other UK universities

The figures and estimated debt reduction indicated above are based on the Liberal Arts Award. This Award may be subject to change in future intakes.
