Funding your study

Bursaries and Scholarships

Dependent upon your degree classification and the subject to be studied, training bursaries & scholarships may be available and range from £28,000 to £4,000. Please see information on the Teaching Agency’s website 

These bursaries are administered by the University so students do not have to apply for these. Payments are made on the 5th working day of each month from October to July.

For bursary awards up to £15,000:

  • Trainees will receive the bursary in 10 equal monthly instalments for the duration of their course.

For bursary awards of £15,000 or over:

  • Trainees will continue to receive 10 equal monthly instalments for the duration of their course, but this will be enhanced by larger payments in February and July, or in the final month of the trainee's course.
  • The trainee will need to be on the course at 1 January to receive the first enhanced payment in February, and would need to have completed the course to receive the second payment at the end of their programme.
  • The trainee will still need to be registered on the course on the day the bursaries are paid to trainees in February in order to be entitled to the first enhanced payment.


Tuition fee loan

Home and EU students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees charged. This is available through Student Finance England

No trainee will need to pay the cost of tuition charges up front. They will only pay once they are in full-time employment and earning above £25,000.

You can calculate an estimate of your loan repayments on the GOV.UK website



Your tuition fees and any other bursary or financial support depend on your status as a home, European Union (EU) or overseas student. Find out moreinformation about EU or overseas status. All bursaries are subject to conditions and you are not guaranteed funding, but you may be eligible for financial support.


Student loan for maintenance

Home students in England may also be eligible for a student maintenance loan to help towards accommodation and other living costs. This is available through Student Finance England. More information on the student loan for maintenance can be found on the GOV.UK website
