There are various funding streams open to students on Worldwide Study Abroad, thanks to the generosity of our alumni and donors:
University of Liverpool Award Fund Travel Grants
These are paid to Home and Islands students participating in an exchange, are not means-tested and you do not have to pay them back. They are a one-off payment. The amounts vary by region and are as follows:
- Asia and South America: £500

- New Zealand: £800
- Australia: £700

Short-term placements (e.g. Occupational Therapy students to Australia) are eligible for a grant of £250.
An additional top up grant of £250 is paid to students in receipt of the following bursaries and scholarships, regardless of the study destination:
- Liverpool Bursary
- Care Leavers’ Opportunity Bursary

Students who go on an exchange to spend a semester/Year 2 @ XJTLU can apply for one of two Fang-Saxby scholarships which include an accommodation and tuition fee waiver at XJTLU and £750 spending per term (£1500 per year)
We have 20 Santander scholarships, worth £1000 each, available each year, which are open to applications from students in receipt of the Liverpool Bursary. They are not country specific.
The University of Liverpool is a member of BUTEX, which aims to promote study abroad between the UK and non-EU universities. Any student going on an exchange outside of the Erasmus scheme can apply for one of the ten £500 scholarships that BUTEX make available. To find out how to apply, visit the BUTEX website.
