Burnley Borough Council has collaborated with UCFB Burnley to promote three exciting scholarships over the next three years.

The scholarship will provide a UCFB Burnley student with £3,000 a year towards their tuition fees, assuming that they meet all their attendance and academic requirements.

Establishing these scholarships demonstrates the commitment of the council and UCFB towards raising educational aspirations among the residents of Burnley

Burnley Council leader Mark Townsend said: “It’s already great news that we have this prestigious and ambitious university college in our borough – a facility that links to the only other UCFB campus in Wembley.

“Alongside the development of the UCLAN campus, and the expansion of Burnley College and the University Technical College, it’s a sign of how opportunities for study and career development have opened up in our town.

“It’s even greater news that our partnership with UCFB has now led to these scholarships. They offer really significant financial help to residents.”

Professor Philip Wilson, provost and chief executive of UCFB said: “Establishing these scholarships demonstrates the commitment of the council and UCFB towards raising educational aspirations among the residents of Burnley.”

A world first in Higher Education, UCFB delivers university degrees in the football business, sport and leisure industries, taught at Turf Moor.
