Applications for Uversity Scholarships Open 1st February

Each year Uversity awards Higher Education Scholarships to Adult Learners aged 23 or over to enrol on a first degree in selected institutions on the island of Ireland, including Queen's University, Belfast. Scholarships of up to €7,000 per year for a maximum of 4 years are made to successful applicants.  

Applications for the scholarship open on February 1st 2022, and the application deadline for courses starting in the 2023-2024 academic year is 24th March 2022. This is potentially a fantastic opportunity for prospective mature students to receive a significant contribution towards living cost for the duration of their degree. Several Queen's students in the past have successfully received this scholarship.

To apply for this scholarship, eligible applicants must:

  • Be at least 23 years by 1st January in the year of enrolment
