If you are eligible for the Bath Bursary, you could be paid up to £3,000 for each year of your studies to help towards course related costs. You will not receive bursary payments while on a paid placement period. If you choose to do an unpaid placement or study abroad, you will continue to receive the bursary payments.
Bursaries are not limited in number. If you meet the criteria, you will receive an award (unless you have applied for and are successful in gaining a Gold Scholarship). Bursaries are awarded in your first year of study.
Bursaries are usually paid in three equal instalments in December, February and April. For the 2021/22 academic year the payment dates are:
- 1 December 2021
- 16 February 2022
- 27 April 2022
Supporting you starting at Bath and accessing technology
If you are a new first year undergraduate student receiving a Bath Bursary, we will make an early bursary 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 Bath Bursary.
If you are a current Bath Bursary recipient please refer to the undergraduate bursaries and scholarships terms and conditions for your year of entry.
