Bournemouth University is proud to have once again joined the Unite Foundation Scholarship Scheme. The scheme is designed to support young people for whom a year-round home for successful study is key. In particular, the Foundation supports students who do not have contact with either of their parents having become estranged for whatever reason or who have come through the care system.  

A Unite Foundation Scholarship means a rent-free university home for three separate years of your degree. You will also have other opportunities through the Unite Foundation’s sponsors, such as work placements, mentoring and activities that can help you make the most of your university experience.  

If you have any questions, please email our Student Support & Engagement Team at: or visit the Unite Foundation website for further information.
