Buckingham Bursaries (from September 2020 entry)

The Buckingham Bursary aims to support students on low incomes or from low income families. The bursary is worth £2000 per year and students receive this as a termly reduction in tuition fees (£500 reduction per term).

To be eligible, you must:

  • be a UK student
  • be a full-time student
  • be based on campus
  • be an undergraduate student
  • be commencing your studies in 2020 or 2021
  • have a household income of under £25,000

Eligible Medical School students will receive the bursary for the first two years of their 4.5 year degree.

Students who are on a Foundation Year (which is three terms of study) will qualify for £1,500 for that year (£500 per term). Students will then qualify for £2,000 per year for the rest of the degree, subject to satisfactory progression.

The Bursary is not available for students on a placement year.

The Buckingham Bursary is awarded each year subject to satisfactory progression into the next year of study.

How to apply

You do not need to apply specifically to Buckingham for this Bursary. We will know if you are eligible from your household income figure provided to us by the Student Loans Company (SLC).

Please note you must be means tested by the end of the academic year (31 August 2021 for September 2020 start, 31 December 2021 for January 2021 start) to be entitled to claim your bursary for the current academic year. If you are means tested after the end of an academic year are no longer eligible to receive the previous year’s bursary.
