You should be aware that none of the scholarships above cover the full cost of studying at Kent, and that you will need to have additional sources of funding in order to cover your tuition fees and/or accommodation, travel and living expenses. All scholarships take the form of a School payment towards tuition fees, and will be paid once the recipient is fully registered at the University of Kent.
The tuition fees for the Economics suite of programmes for the 2019/20 academic year are listed on the University's tuition fees web pages.
Fees for 2020/21 and beyond have not yet been finalised and therefore could be subject to change.
