Who can apply

You will be offered a Bursary as long as:

  • you are a new undergraduate starting your course in 2017/18,
  • you are a Home/UK student, funded through your Regional Funding Provider (e.g Student Finance England)
  • you are living in University-allocated accommodation, 
  • your household income is below £20,000 per annum, and
  • the address given on your UCAS form falls into one of our designated areas - see the information box below for full details.

The University will offer accommodation bursaries to students whose UCAS home address is within an area with low progression rates to higher education. You can check whether your address qualifies by using the POLAR checking tool and inputting your postcode. Please note, we will be using the young participation POLAR marker. On the results screen, if the number in the first column is either a 1 or 2, your address will qualify.
