We provide an enhanced bursary of £3,600 per year of study. This is available to students from care with annual tuition fees exceeding £6,000, whose household income is £30,000 or below.
We just need you to follow two simple steps:
1. Let us know you have been in care, either on your UCAS application or by contacting us directly, and we can begin to put the funding in place.
2. When you apply for student finance, make sure you allow your information to be shared with the university – then there is no need for you to make a separate application for the enhanced bursary.
We can help you apply for your funding, review your finances with you, and explore further funding opportunities as part of the confidential and approachable service we offer.
