Bursaries for EU students

We can confirm that EU students who are eligible under current rules to receive loans and grants from the Student Loans Company will continue to do so for courses they are currently enrolled on or about to start in 2017 including courses that start in January 2017.  

You can receive a Bursary if:

  • You are entering Higher Education for the first time (after 1 September 2016)
  • You are studying full-time on an eligible undergraduate course
  • You are being charged the full-time tuition fee
  • Your assessed household income is within the above limit
Household Income                Bursary
£0-£25,000 Annual £1,000 bursary (including £100 of Blackwell's book vouchers)
£25,001-£36,592 Annual £600 bursary (including £100 of Blackwell's book vouchers)

For more information on finance please see Fees and finance

How to apply for the bursary

You apply for the bursary at the same time as you apply to the Student Finance Services European Team in Darlington for a loan to cover your tuition fees. You need to submit a EU16B form to apply for bursaries. You need to call to request this form on (+44) (0) 141 243 3570.

The EU Team will share this information with us and we will decide if you qualify to receive the bursary, based on your household income, your tuition fees and your course.

Unfortunately, if you do not agree to allow them to share this information with us, you cannot qualify to receive a bursary.

When is the money paid?

Your bursary will be paid once only after you have been assessed as meeting the criteria. 

Bursaries are assessed on household income and are paid direct to you (in instalments).

You will receive the maintenance (cash) element of your bursary in three instalments (you can use the money to reduce any of your expenses associated with studying).

You will receive your £100 Blackwell’s book vouchers as part of your first instalment. Details on how to collect your card will be included in your bursary award email.

Our advice

  • Ask for advice and take time to plan your finances carefully
  • Make sure you are aware of all the help that's available
  • Apply for a tuition fee loan early EU16N (Please be aware that by ticking the box on page 16 prevents us from seeing any information)
  • You should apply for the bursary and loan at the same time as then they may be assessed quicker
