Scholarships and study grants

If you do not already have a university qualification and would like to study at the UB, you can apply for one of the grants awarded each year by the Ministry of Education and Science.

These are awarded to university students who are resident in one of the Autonomous Communities and who also wish to study there, and to Spanish students who want to move to a different Community in order to continue their studies.
