The Core Bursary is assessed using the household income figure provided to the University by the Student Loans Company. If the University has been provided with this figure by early October then, subject to your eligibility, the bursary should show on your portal by the end of October.

If your income figure is provided to the University after early October (for example, if your means-tested Student Finance isn’t determined by this date) or if your income figure is reassessed by Student Finance during the academic year, then please contact the Funding and Financial Support team using the Enquire and Submit link on this portal, requesting that your Core Bursary eligibility is checked.

If eligible we will aim to award your bursary within 1 month of your enquiry.
