Bursaries

For 2015 entry the University will be offering the following bursaries for Home and EU students:

Criteria Support Amount Duration
Household income less than £16,000 £1,800 per annum for up to four years* of undergraduate study
Household income £16,001 to £20,000 £1,000 per annum for up to four years* of undergraduate study
Care Leaver £3,000 per annum for up to four years* of undergraduate study

* Support is provided for no more than four years of study even if course is longer. Note that a Foundation Year counts as one year of study towards your maximum of four years of bursary support.

Support is on a fee pro-rata basis for those students paying half fees or less. Bursaries cannot be combined, for example, if a student is a care leaver, they will be eligible for a £3,000 bursary only.

Bursary payment options:

  • Full bursary amount as a fee waiver (default option)
  • Full bursary amount as a University accommodation discount
  • Full bursary amount in cash

Students on NHS funded courses (i.e. where no fee is payable from the student) offered by the University are not eligible for a University bursary. NHS funded courses are those offered by the School of Nursing Sciences and School of Rehabilitation Sciences. The only exceptions are students defined as care leavers, who are eligible for a care leaver's bursary if studying an NHS course.

Unfortunately students from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man are not eligible for UEA bursary support, but could be eligible for scholarship support.
