Early payment of your Gold Scholarship - supporting you starting at Bath and accessing technology
If you are a new first-year undergraduate student receiving a Gold Scholarship, we will make an early bursary payment of £500 prior to starting your studies to support your access to and allow you to purchase any technology you may require before teaching starts. In order to receive this payment you must have registered online, completed all administrative tasks associated with your confirmation of place to study at Bath, and have provided your bank details by a set date. You will be emailed information on how to submit bank details should you be successful in gaining a Gold Scholarship. Full information about this early payment can be found in our Terms and Conditions.
If you are a current Gold Scholar please refer to the Gold Scholarship Programme Terms and Conditions for your year of entry.
