The form in which eligible students will receive their bursary can be chosen by the student from the following options:

  • Full bursary amount as a fee waiver (default option)
  • Full bursary amount as a University accommodation discount
  • £1000 cash bursary, and remaining balance as an accommodation discount or as a fee waiver
  • Full bursary amount in cash (this option is only available for students in their second year onwards.)

Support for students with a household income of less than £16,000 is provided as part of the Government's National Scholarship Programme.

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 Allied Health Professions.
