Funding - Higher Education Bursary Scheme

You may be eligible for financial support to help you succeed in your higher education studies.

There are two financial support schemes available in 2016/17 and 2017/18: 

The B&FC Advantage Bursary

A means tested bursary designed to help with the costs of equipment associated with studying to the value of £500. You may be eligible if you are a new full-time level 4 UK home student or EU national and have been living permanently in the UK for the last 5 years (undergraduate students only). There are a limited number available, therefore eligibility will be assessed using data supplied by Student Finance England. This will only be awarded in the first year of study. Students sponsored by an employer or in paid employment are not eligible.

The B&FC Access Scholarship

Guaranteed for all care leavers and young carers to the value of £1000 per year of study, to a maximum of 3 years and in 2 payments per year of £500. If you are studying part-time, the amount will be paid pro rata and you must be studying a minimum of 25% of the full-time course each year. The scholarship is available to new UK home students or EU nationals who have been living permanently in the UK for the last 5 years. The award will not be available if you are repeating a study year or doing a placement year.

Instructions on how to apply and further information can be found in the ‘B&FC Higher Education Bursary Schemes' document below. Applications must be submitted no later than 1 September 2016.
