Scholarships & funding

Scholarships & funding

UA is committed to helping students fund their education, and while international students will need to provide evidence of their ability to pay for their course as part of their application, that doesn't exclude them from applying to some of the scholarships that the university has to offer, in order to ease the financial burden.

Every year, there is more than USD 260 million provided to students in financial assistance, and over 86 percent of all undergraduate students receive some form of financial relief towards their tuition costs.

Not all scholarships require a separate application, but students are advised to apply for those that do promptly upon acceptance of a place at UA.
