We will be offering a bursary of up to £1000* to full-time undergraduate home students who are paying full fees and start or continue their degree studies with us in September 2018. (please see exemptions below).

All students will receive a guaranteed bursary of £400 for each year of their studies and some students who meet certain criteria (see below), will also receive an additional bursary amount of £600.

The bursary is available for each year of your course and will help you with the costs associated with studying a degree whether it’s for travel, accommodation, course materials or anything else that helps you with your studies.
