Additional information 

As a Foundation Degree student studying at a partner college, am I eligible to claim the Bath Bursary? 

Yes, all UK undergraduate students who receive Government Student Support, via Student Finance Direct (SLC) or their Local Authority, and are subject to the annual tuition fee rate of £3,465 a year in 2014/15 may be eligible for a Bath Bursary subject to their household income.

I am not entitled to Student Support as I have already studied for a degree. How can I claim the Bursary? 

As you are aware, if you have previously graduated with an Honours Degree and/or been fully funded for a previous course of study at HE level you may be ineligible for Government Student Support. However, in order for us to assess your eligibility for the Bath Bursary, you will need to be income assessed by your relevant Government Support Agency. You need to apply to be income assessed through the Student Support system by following the relevant links. Depending on where you live you should apply to:

You will normally need form PN1 as a "new" student. You will need to add notes to your form which clearly state: "I am submitting this application for Student Support as I need to be Income assessed to ensure my University can assess me for their financial support package, please treat as urgent".

If my parents/carers or partner do not wish to supply household income details to the University, am I still able to apply for a Bursary? 

We cannot assess your Bursary without this information. If your parents/ carers or partner have requested that their income information not be directly shared with us by the SLC you will not automatically be able to claim. However if you receive a Maintenance Grant and your family household income is under £50,000 you can bring a copy of your Financial Assessment letter from the SLC to the Student Services Helpdesk when you arrive at the University, this will allow us to assess your eligibility for a Bursary based on the level of Maintenance Grant you receive.
