Travel bursary

The Travel Bursary is open for prospective home (UK) 2018/19 students.

The University Travel Bursary fund can cover the travel costs of students wishing to attend an undergraduate interview, departmental open day or a post-offer visit day

Post offer visit days commence from 29th November 2017.

If you attended a departmental interview, or a Post Offer Visit Day since September 2017, you are eligible to apply retrospectively. Please use the Travel Bursary Claim Form at the bottom of this page.

The bursary is available on a first-come-first-served basis to those with a household income of £42,875 or below and covers the train/coach/air/boat fare at the most economical rate available, or the cost of petrol at 15p per mile if you travel by car. The bursary is only available to prospective students and cannot be used to cover the travel costs of family members or friends.

Please note that students attending the main University open days in June and September are not eligible to apply for assistance from this fund.
