- Household income up to £24,999: £3,000 bursary
- Household income £25,000 to £50,778: £2,000 bursary
Students who are estranged from their parents and/or guardians or care experienced may be eligible for a further £1,000 bursary award. Students who can evidence childcare responsibilities to dependents under 18 will be eligible for a further one-off bursary award uplift of £400, in addition to any standard bursary award. Additional documentation will be requested.
You can take your bursary as cash to help with your living costs, to help pay your accommodation, or even to help with tuition fees. It is up to you how you choose to use your bursary. Bursary funds will be disbursed in two payments over the academic year.
Please note that in some cases, we may require additional information in order to carry out our assessment. If this applies, we will contact you.
