Váradi scholarships

University of London alumnus József Váradi has donated over £1 million to the University, to provide scholarships to support up to 100 distance and flexible learning students over the next ten years.

The Váradi Scholarships Programme is now accepting applicants for its fourth cohort of students. Each successful applicant will be eligible for an award of up to £10,900 towards the cost of their programme fees. Applicants must be able to state how they will pay any outstanding fees not covered by the Váradi Scholarship when applying. The percentage of what an applicant will need to pay towards their degree will be confirmed when they receive the scholarship offer.

About the scholarship

József completed an LLM with the University via distance learning in 2014, specializing in International Business Law.  He is the CEO and co-founder of Wizz Air.

The Váradi Scholarships will continue the University of London’s founding mission of opening access to education and connecting worlds.

Thanks to the generosity of alumni like József, the University can break down barriers to education and provide support to some of our most deserving students, allowing them to improve their lives and the lives of others in their communities.

The Váradi scholarships cover all University of London tuition fees. The scholarships do not cover any fees or costs (such as computers and additional study materials or Teaching Centre fees) not directly payable to the University of London.
