Taught postgraduate master's bursaries

Bursaries available to UK taught postgraduate students on master's courses starting in the academic year 2017/18.

About the taught postgraduate Bath bursary

We offer 50 bursaries, each worth £6,000, available to UK taught postgraduate master's students starting in the academic year 2017/18.

Find out if you're eligible

You can apply for a bursary if you are a Home (UK) student and you have received an offer to study an eligible master's course.

An eligible master's course leads to an MSc, MBA, MA or standalone MRes with a maximum duration of two years for a full-time course or four years for a part-time course. Part-time courses must be studied at a minimum of 50% intensity (for example, a course which would take one year if studied full-time may take up to two years if studied part-time).

The selection panel may also take into account widening participation criteria and information in your supporting statement if:

  • you were aged 21 or over when you started your undergraduate studies
  • you received free school meals, Education Maintenance Allowance or a 16 to 19 bursary
  • you attended a state school or a low-performing school
  • your gender is underrepresented in your academic department
  • your ethnicity is underrepresented in your academic faculty

Applying for a bursary

If you have an offer of a place to study at the University we will contact you from late May to let you know how to apply.
