Applications for courses where the fees are higher than this can be considered but in no circumstances will the bursary be higher than £7,000.
The closing date for applications for courses which start in September/October in any year (or with a later starting date in the same academic year) is June 30 preceding the start date. Application forms are available from April 1 in any year.
