We recognise that for many Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) students, the playing field for entry into university isn’t always level and this can be a barrier to students from these under-represented backgrounds reaching their potential.

For students applying for 2024 entry to our undergraduate courses, Solent University is offering the BAME Student Scholarship.

These scholarships provide eligible first year undergraduate students, from specific ethnic backgrounds, £1,000 each to use towards their university tuition fees or the cost of student living.

How the scholarship is awarded

The scholarship is awarded in the form of £1,000 which can be used by first-year undergraduate students in the following ways:

  • A £1,000 reduction of tuition fees for the first year of study.


  • A £1,000 balance credit applied to the student's Solent University Everyday catering app account. The Everyday app is used to purchase food and drink consumables from any of the University's catering outlets, including Costa Coffee and Starbucks.

The scholarship is non means tested, non-repayable and available in addition to any other funding that you may also be eligible.

Successful applicants for this one-off scholarship must meet the following criteria:

  • Have applied for and hold a firm acceptance, full-time undergraduate course offer from Solent University.
