Value of Bursary

The value of a bursary is calculated individually depending on the loan and grant applicable to a non final year, student living away from home for your domicile and household income.  The applicable loan and grant are then subtracted from the threshold figure to calculate the bursary.

Income    £0 - £30,000                      Threshold 1   (£7500)      

Income   £30001 - £42611                Threshold 2    (6750)

Income   £42,611.01 and above         No Award

Please note the the maximum loan and grant payable is always used in calculating the bursary even if you have not taken out the loan or do not receive the grant.

Welsh qualifying students with the maximum grant will receive a bursary of £323

Placement Awards

Students on a placement year or repeating a year who are paying fees of under £6000 will not qualify for a bursary during that year.  Placements students should apply to the University student fund for additional financial support if required.
