*Scholars are required to take part in a number of sessions across the academic year, some of which will take place on evenings and at weekends.
Bursaries are usually paid in three equal instalments in December, February and May. For the 2021/22 academic year the payment dates are:
- 1 December 2021
- 16 February 2022

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 scholarship payment of £500 prior to starting your studies to support your access to and any purchase of technology you may require before teaching starts. In order to receive this payment you must have completed Registration On Line and 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.
If you are a current Gold Scholar please refer to the Gold Scholarship Programme terms and conditions for your year of entry.
