Additional support and funding

This applies to students* who enter the University in 2016/17 to commence with their first year of study towards an undergraduate award.


This is a fund for students from under-represented groups with a residual household income below £25,000.  Support available may include: bicycle vouchers; support for educational visits; and exceptionally, hardship grants or loans.


Students who enrol in 2016/17 and progress successfully to Level 6 study at the University in 2018/19, and who are in receipt of a full maintenance loan e.g. £8,200 in 2016/17, will receive a progression scholarship of £200 on enrolment for their Level 6 study here.  To be paid in December.


The University will provide an annual grant of £2,000 to support any student joining us from a care background and who meet our criteria.  This support aims to work towards breaking down the barriers that prevent young people from care entering higher education.  It is awarded for each year of academic study at the University and will be paid in February.

*The provision of this Access Agreement applies to all full-time students who are domiciled in England. Students who are admitted with advanced standing will be covered by the terms applicable to their cohort.
