Each academic year the University publishes our bursary framework, a list of financial awards that eligible students may apply for. This page explains the available awards, the eligibility criteria and the details of the application process.
Students should please note the following:
- The majority of the bursaries listed below are awarded on the basis of application. Not all applications are successful and students are advised not to expect an award, and to plan their budget accordingly.
- The bursary framework changes on an annual basis to reflect the needs of our student community and to work within the budget established by the University’s Fee and Access Plan. Bursaries that are offered for the current academic year may not be available in subsequent years.
- A successful bursary application should not be taken as an indication that other applications will be successful.
- Each bursary listed below carries a maximum award, bursary allocations may be made below the maximum level in order to ensure that the funding supports as many students as possible.
- Payments will be made direct to your bank account via BACS and the awards may be paid in instalments across the semesters rather than paid as a one-off sum.
The 2021-22 Bursary framework is outlined below. There are specific eligibility criteria for each of the awards but the two basic criteria in order to be able to be considered for an award are:
- You must be enrolled on a UWTSD-delivered programme for the 2021-22 academic year.
- You must be studying at least 40 credits in the academic year.
