Student support

Henley UG Bursary Quote

We are committed to supporting student excellence and ensuring that the best and brightest students can study with us without the worry of financial concern.

Through the support of our community we can ensure to assist academically able students from across the world to study their chosen career path with us, as well as provide funding during their studies for those who experience unexpected financial hardship.

Student support can take its guise in many forms, and whilst support can be specific by giving to our Greatest Need pot you can be sure to help empower even more individuals to become the great professionals and the outstanding leaders of tomorrow, by helping them access a world-class education.

If you would like to set up a regular gift, you can do this easily via our giving pages, however if you wish to discuss a more substantial gift such as a legacy or scholarships please get in touch with the Development Team at Henley at or at +(0)118 378 4195.

“These bursaries provide a vital financial lifeline to students who would otherwise be deterred from entering higher education. By widening access to our programmes we are opening up life changing opportunities for individual students, we are building a more diverse and inclusive student community, and we are making good on our commitment to help create a fairer world.”
Peter Miskell, Head of Undergraduate Programmes Henley Business School

Imagine if you never had the opportunity to attend university, because you did not have sufficient funds to meet your living costs for the period of your studies. For many talented young people wishing to pursue a degree at Henley Business School this is a reality.

This year we saw an unprecedented increase in demand for financial support, with a record 63 applications from academically gifted students wishing to enrol for a Henley Business School undergraduate degree. We look for applicants who meet a range of criteria; for example individuals who have received financial support during secondary education such as free school meals, have limited family experience of Higher Education or have been in the care system. Despite a high number of financially deserving applicants, who met multiple criteria, we were only able to offer two bursaries.

Why do we need your help?

Henley is proud to have always been able to support those wishing to study at Henley thanks to the generosity of our community. But more is needed to ensure that academically talented individuals lacking the financial means are able to study, and contribute to the diverse talent pool of our student body, enriching the experience for all and contributing to a fairer society.

By raising £50,000 to meet this challenge we can ensure that we are able to support a larger number of gifted students in need of financial support. So far this year, we have already raised almost £18,000 but this is a fraction of what we need. Your gift could tip the scales.
