The University College provides a variety of scholarships, grants and study loans, some of which are administered by the Student Financial Aid Unit and others by external organizations. Some types of financial aid offered to students are merit-based, while others will take into consideration certain main criteria such as the applicant’s academic performance, family financial background and/or their participation in extra-curricular activities.
