Brittan scholarship

Investing in your future

This scholarship is available to students applying for a programme of study within our School of Computing, Media & the Arts or School of Science, Engineering & Design.

Dame Diana Brittan DBE has generously donated two scholarships in memory of her late husband, Lord Leon Brittan. Lord Brittan was the first ever Chancellor of Teesside University from 1993 to 2005. Philanthropic scholarships at Teesside University enhance the student learning experience by supporting the cost of living and providing access to additional or extra-curricular activities.

Leon believed that education leading to continued intellectual curiosity opened up an individual's future and the potential of whole communities and nations.
